Round Up: Books: Voices of Yellowstone’s Capstone

Released in the fall of 2019, Voices of Yellowstone’s Capstone: A Narrative Atlas of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness (Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Foundation, $45) is a 338-page, coffee-table-sized book that explores the cultural and natural resources of this treasured wilderness area north of Yellowstone National Park. The book includes essays by a variety of writers, accompanied by illustrated maps and colorful photographs. Serving as a fundraiser for the foundation, the book was edited by Traute Parrie and Jesse Logan, with all proceeds benefitting
the organization.

The Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Area consists of more than 920,000 acres of public land that includes the Absaroka and Beartooth mountain ranges. Within its forested scope are 700 miles of trails, hundreds of lakes, and dozens of streams in a landscape that is preserved under the highest level of protection for public lands in the U.S. The foundation is a nonprofit that’s dedicated to protecting this vast wilderness, what they refer to as “one of the true crown jewels of the entire Wilderness Preservation System.” They work toward raising awareness about this landscape by educating forest users about stewardship through volunteer trail maintenance projects and citizen science activities.
