Yellowstone Series from the Author: Linda Jacobs. In Summer of Fire, it is 1988, and Yellowstone Park is on fire. Among the thousands of summer warriors battling to save America's crown jewel, is single mother Clare Chance. Having just watched her best friend, a fellow Texas firefighter, die in a roof collapse, she has fled to Montana to try and put the memory behind her. She's not the only one fighting personal demons as well as the fiery dragon threatening to consume the park. There's Chris Deering, a Vietnam veteran helicopter pilot, seeking his next adrenaline high and a good time that doesn't include his wife, and Ranger Steve Haywood, a man scarred by the loss of his wife and baby in a plane crash. They rally around Clare when tragedy strikes yet again, and she loses a young soldier to a firestorm. Three flawed, wounded people; one horrific blaze. Its tentacles are encircling the park, coming ever closer, threatening to cut them off. The landmark Old Faithful Inn and Park Headquarters at Mammoth are under siege, and now there's a helicopter down, missing, somewhere in the path of the conflagration. And Clare's daughter is on it. In Rain of Fire, geologist Kyle Stone watched her family die in the 1959 Hebgen Lake Earthquake near Yellowstone. Fighting a lifetime of fears, she is one of the scientists with a finger on Yellowstone's pulse. When a new hot spring appears overnight in the park and a noted naturalist is scalded to death, Kyle mounts an expedition into the Yellowstone backcountry to unravel the mystery. Accompanying her are Ranger Wyatt Ellison, former student and friend, and Dr. Nicholas Darden, volcanologist and former lover. More than just a volcano is heating up. Amid personal conflict, earthquakes uprooting the land, and poison gases killing wildlife, Kyle finds herself in the unenviable position of convincing park officials to evacuate Yellowstone before tens of thousands of people die. As the earth shudders, Kyle must defeat her darkest terror simply to survive. In Lake of Fire, Yellowstone National Park provides the setting for love and adventure as a young Indian attempts to hide his heritage and adopt the life of a businessman, while an heiress traveling from Chicago conceals her wealthy background. A twist of fate brings them together, and the revelation of both their secrets brings them even closer. Packed with excitement, the story follows the couple as they overcome jealousy and violence while fighting to survive in the wilderness.

Yellowstone Standoff from the Author: Scott Graham. "Graham's intriguing third National Park Mystery takes archaeologist Chuck Bender to the Thorofare region of Yellowstone… The threatening behavior of the park's predators is worrisome enough, and the discovery of a murdered researcher lifts threats to a whole new level. Graham does a fine job detailing the various and competing demands made on national parks by the public, scientists, and bureaucrats." —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "Bears and wolves in Yellowstone's backcountry don't hold a candle to the danger posed by the people sent there to study them. [Yellowstone Standoff balances] potential danger and shady characters." —KIRKUS REVIEWS "Graham does a terrific job of maintaining suspense and keeping the reader wondering what could possibly be happening. The remote forests of Yellowstone are well described, and Graham's writing transports the reader…" —REVIEWING THE EVIDENCE "One part mystery, one part mysticism, and one part mayhem—Scott Graham's Yellowstone Standoff is all parts thrilling." —CRAIG JOHNSON, author of the Longmire Mysteries Yellowstone Standoff takes man versus nature—and man tangled up with nature—right to the brink of wild suspense." —MARK STEVENS, author of Lake of Fire What an extraordinary ride! You know when a reader says they couldn't put the book down? Yellowstone Standoff is one of those rare books…a tour de force." —WIN BLEVINS, author of The Darkness Rolling With sweeping landscapes, engaging characters, and a twisted plot, Scott Graham’s Yellowstone Standoff is a must–read mystery that’s hard to set down." —MARGARET MIZUSHIMA, author of Killing Trail: A Timber Creek K-9 Mystery Book three in the National Park Mystery Series, Yellowstone Standoff takes readers deep into the backcountry of a wildly popular national park. When Yellowstone National Park's grizzly bears and gray wolves suddenly and inexplicably go rogue, archaeologist Chuck Bender teams with his old friend, Yellowstone Chief Ranger Lex Hancock, to defend the suspect members of a group scientific expedition. Soon, Chuck finds himself defending the lives of his family as an unforeseen danger threatens in the storied national park's remote wilderness. SCOTT GRAHAM is the author of seven books, including Canyon Sacrifice and Mountain Rampage—books one and two in the National Park Mystery Series from Torrey House Press—and Extreme Kids, winner of the National Outdoor Book Award. Like most visitors to America's first national park, Graham was awestruck by Yellowstone as a child. His fascination with the park has continued in the years since, with numerous visits to Yellowstone's geyser- and wildlife-filled front country and its incomparable wilderness. Graham is an avid outdoorsman and amateur archaeologist who enjoys mountaineering, skiing, hunting, rock climbing, and whitewater rafting with his wife, who is an emergency physician, and their two sons. He lives in Durango, Colorado.

The Year Yellowstone Burned from the Author: Jeff Henry. The Yellowstone fires of 1988 consumed nearly 800,000 acres—36 percent of the park. In the years following, spectacular wildflowers rose from the ashes and trees rapidly reclaimed the landscape. In this twenty-five-year look back at the fires, author and photographer Jeff Henry recalls not only the summer of 1988, when he witnessed and photographed nearly every aspect of the fires, but also the years since as nature healed the charred landscape. A beautiful book that depicts nature as simultaneously malevolent and beneficent, The Year Yellowstone Burned demonstrates the resilience of one of our continent’s most dynamic ecosystems.

Presently in Yellowstone there are almost 200 active research permits involving over 500 investigators, but only a small fraction of this scientific work is reported in the popular press.
