“If you’ve ever visited Yellowstone National Park or even thought about going there, you’ll enjoy Letters from Yellowstone. . . . A pleasurable story which does full justice to America’s greatest natural wonderland.”

“Insightful . . . Letters from Yellowstone charms with natural surprises.”
USA Today

“An intrepid heroine and an ineffectual but lovable hero grapple with a supporting cast of eccentric characters in first-time novelist Diane Smith’s virtuoso Letters from Yellowstone . . . There’s surprising grit in this portrait of Yellowstone, and real charm in this quietly original debut.”

Letters from Yellowstone has it all—great story, engaging characters, fascinating history, science in the making, and all the awesome beauty of Yellowstone Park. Diane Smith is a completely wonderful writer.”
—James Welch

“A beautifully written epistolary story . . . The author brings an authenticity to the controversies about scientific method and the environment as well as the expedition’s finds. . . . This debut novel is an intelligent story, a charmer with style.”
The Denver Post

“Simply and brilliantly captures that time when the American wilderness was still a pristine, awe-inspiring place.”
Rocky Mountain News

“Diane Smith has written a book with real magic and grace. The prose glistens and the story lingers with elegant power.”
—Thomas McGuane
