This volume is an introduction to the nature of Yellowstone Park and the surrounding area which makes up the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE). Sometimes called the American Serengeti after the vast, wildlife-rich plains of East Africa, Yellowstone is an unparalleled treasurehouse of nature within the boundaries of our own homeland

This volume has been made possible through the help of a number of people and organizations. We would particularly like to thank the Greater Yellowstone Coalition in Bozeman, Montana for help in compiling the ‘People and Yellowstone’ chapter and the staff of Yellowstone National Park for providing interviews and photographs essential to the richness of this multimedia study of what must truly be one of the great natural wonders of the world.
