Here’s what pre-publication reviewers say about the book:
“Eminent naturalist and wildlife advocate Rick Lamplugh draws from a deep personal wellspring of experience and knowledge to take readers into Yellowstone’s wild heart.” Cristina Eisenberg, PhD, Chief Scientist, Earthwatch Institute, author

“…an important book that deserves to be read by everyone who cares about wildlife and wildlands.” Barbara Moritsch, author

“Lamplugh is a word artist; Yellowstone is his palette.” Julianne Baker, Yellowstone instructor

“A touch of Bill Bryson’s whimsy, a dose of Edward Abbey’s insight, and the story-telling charm of John McPhee…” John Gillespie, geologist

Here’s what the book’s about:
The year of immersion begins when my wife Mary and I trust the pull of Yellowstone; leave family, friends, and security after thirty-five years in Oregon; and relocate to Gardiner, Montana, at Yellowstone’s north gate. 

As you read Deep into Yellowstone, you are right there with us as we cross-country ski, hike, bicycle, and backpack into Yellowstone’s wild grandeur. You will also learn about important controversies: the dispute over hunting park wolves along Yellowstone’s border, the debate about whether wolves help or harm the ecosystem and the local economy, the outrage over the proposed removal of grizzlies from ESA protection, the fight to stop the slaughter of park bison, the reality of overuse of the park, and the effort to stop a gold mine right on the park’s border.

I ended my year of immersion with an even stronger love for Yellowstone’s grandeur and a deeper knowledge of the controversies that threaten the park from many directions and factions. And I hope you will too. ~ Rick Lamplugh
