Updates to this edition include tinted tabs to indicate the six different regions of the park and their approach roads, in addition to the tabs in previous editions for the geological, historical, and natural history sections; up-to-date scientific information to reflect recent research, including two new geological diagrams; highlighted historic items in the road logs; a dozen new pictures; and fully revised maps to show recent road changes and other details.

If you aren't using this Yellowstone Treasures book, you will miss so much along the way and in the park. The book is broken into sections. For example, there's the drive from Canyon to Norris or West Thumb to Canyon, with miles given along each drive or section. Without the book, you'll go buzzing along the highway, missing hidden gems, trails, sights not to be missed. It gives the length of trails, elevation of the hike, what's to see along the hike. It also divides the basin areas into sections (Upper, Lower, etc) and gives you a route to walk the geyers or mudpots, giving a bit of history or detail about each. Without the book, you'll walk the boardwalks without knowing the whole story or history. I missed this book terribly when we headed out of Yellowstone to the Grand Tetons. I had no guide and had no idea what to look for, what to do, where to go for hikes.
