From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6 --This clear, lively text accompanied by lush, bright, full-color photos portrays the grandeur of Yellowstone Park. Explaining the battle against fire from a historical perspective, the authors carefully explain the changing philosophies. The 1988 fire is detailed chronologically with accurate description of all the methods, hard work, and frustration of the fire fighters, and the sense of danger and devastation is also evoked through very descriptive writing. Well-placed photos complement the subjects explained in the text. The fire photos sear with heat, and many of the pictures of wildlife will have real child appeal. Not one aspect has been left out; the all-important role of the impact of weather conditions is also stressed. The authors conclude their logical, unbiased presentation of the constant, natural development of the park with a discussion of the forces of underground fires found in Yellowstone's volcanism. Librarians will want to purchase this well-written and more balanced volume rather than the more sensational Fire in Yellowstone (Gareth Stevens, 1990) by Ekey. --Susannah Price, Boise Public Library, ID
