I finished reading Letters From Yellowstone this past week and I really enjoyed the novel because the main female character reminded me of Louisa May Alcotts' Jo because both are strong willed, adventurous and artistically gifted. The premise of Letters From Yellowstone is a group of scientists are cataloging the plant diversity located with in the nations first National Park during tumultuous time in the parks history. The story is told through the out going mail sent from the various members of the exploration to either family members or other scientists. The idea of living within the boundaries of Yellowstone and being able to freely walking about the new park identifying, cataloging and illustrating every specimen of flora or fauna I stumble upon really got my heart beating! I adore every inch of land and grain of dirt located within the boarders of YNP as do most people who have ever traveled to the park. I believe Yellowstone is one of the most magical places in the United States. (Take that Disneyland!) You can veiw previous For the love of books here and here.
