Select Peaks of Greater Yellowstone
Turiano’s book is to the Yellowstone Ecosystem what the Edwards guide is to Glacier National Park and the Roach guides are to Colorado’s fourteeners and centennial thirteeners-- it is not only about as comprehensive as a book covering such a vast area reasonably could be but also written from a vantage of great experience with and knowledge of the subject.
Turiano divides the book according to the great ranges of the Yellowstone area: Gallatin, Madison, Teton, Snake River, Wyoming, Salt River, Wind River, Gros Ventre, Beartooth, and Absaroka. The Absaroka Range itself is divided into three sections of its own due to its vastness and changing character. Signature peaks such as the Grand Teton, Gannett Peak, and Granite Peak are covered, of course, but there are many lesser-known peaks, too. Route types range from walk-ups to technical climbs, so mountaineers of all skill levels can find something, actually plenty somethings, in this book.
Useful diagrams abound, and there are often helpful photos illustrating crux sections or other important aspects on climbs. Scenic photos will have the viewer compiling a list of climbs that will take years to complete. Every mountain has at least one good route description, including details on how to get to the starting point.
