This book offers stunning photographs of every corner of the 2.2 million acres that make up these parks, including such treasures as Lake Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River, and the world's most famous geyser, Old Faithful, as well as rainbow-colored geyser basins of the north Mammoth country, and herds of buffalo and elk on the wide plains of the Lamar Valley. Sit back and behold the beauty of the Grand Tetons at sunset, the breathtaking vistas over the Snake River, or the refreshing waterfalls off the Bechler River trail. Whether it’s boating on Jackson Lake or a hike around Grand Prismatic Spring that you desire, Spectacular Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks takes you deep into the parks' many gorgeous landscapes in every season of the year.

Yellowstone: Survival: A Post-Apocalyptic Survival Thriller (The Yellowstone Series Book 4)

By Bobby Akart

Released: 2018-11-27
Kindle Edition (240 pages)

Yellowstone: Survival: A Post-Apocalyptic Survival Thriller (The Yellowstone Series Book 4)
 
Product Description:
Our world has ended five times.
It's been fried, and then frozen.
Gassed with poison; smothered with ash; and bombarded from space.
Extinction is the rule. Survival is the exception.


The Yellowstone Series, a new disaster thriller from critically acclaimed author, Bobby Akart, takes the reader on a thrill ride as a cataclysmic event of extinction level proportions ticks away like a time bomb, awaiting its moment. Millions of people visit the Yellowstone National Park every year blissfully unaware they are on top of the greatest killer man has ever known - the Yellowstone Supervolcano.

Mankind had lived in the very shadows of the Earth's volcanoes for centuries. Even with advanced technology issuing warnings of the potentially catastrophic impact of volcanic activity, we built homes and businesses nearby; boarded tour buses to visit them; and failed to plan for the volcanic winter that necessarily resulted for the eruption of the largest among the - the Yellowstone Supervolcano.

Following the eruption of Yellowstone, resources were scarce and the battle for survival began as man faced off against man for water, food, and medical attention. If Earth's greatest killer didn't take your life directly, it did so indirectly through starvation and dehydration.

Those who remained fought amongst themselves to survive.

Know this. The eruption of the Yellowstone Supervolcano will be more than a spectacle to grab our attention. It will be the end of the world as we know it.

PRAISE FOR THE AUTHOR

"No one, and I mean NO ONE, does it better! Mr. Akart knows how to write a thriller that is too realistic for comfort."

"Vintage Akart ... he scares the wits into you, and then shows you to survive the greatest threats to our existence."

"When an author can bring out so many emotions in a reader, it is the sign of some damn fine writing."

"Emotional and action packed with plot twists that keep you hooked."

"Packed with suspense, drama, and raw emotion ... Akart has a firm grasp of the science and uses his masterful storytelling skills to shift between the plot and the learning experience which is a trademark of his novels."

ABOUT THE YELLOWSTONE SERIES

Volcanoes are the Earth's way of letting off steam. While most people look at volcanic eruptions as natural disasters, the fact of the matter is, without them, the Earth would explode. Deep beneath the surface of the planet, excess heat builds up, finding a way to vent. Like an overcrowded bus on a hot summer day, the overheated magma stews in its own madness, allowing pent-up frustrations to boil over, until it releases its fury - its HELLFIRE - upon the world above.

Yellowstone is the most potentially explosive, violent, deadly, active volcano on our planet and scientists agree, a catastrophic eruption is inevitable. Yellowstone is extraordinary in its potential and is quite simply, Earth's greatest killer. You've been warned.

Product Description:
The chilling tome that launched an entire genre of books about the often gruesome but always tragic ways people have died in our national parks, this updated edition of the classic includes calamities in Yellowstone from the past sixteen years, including the infamous grizzly bear attacks in the summer of 2011 as well as a fatal hot springs accident in 2000. In these accounts, written with sensitivity as cautionary tales about what to do and what not to do in one of our wildest national parks, Whittlesey recounts deaths ranging from tragedy to folly—from being caught in a freak avalanche to the goring of a photographer who just got a little too close to a bison. Armchair travelers and park visitors alike will be fascinated by this important book detailing the dangers awaiting in our first national park.

Book 1 in the Yellowstone Time Travel Romance Series

"I am not good with words, but you make my heart sing, Aimee..."

Nurse and avid backpacker Aimee Donovan is offered the opportunity of a lifetime. She encounters a patient who tells her he is a time traveler and can send her two hundred years into the past to spend three months in the rugged Yellowstone wilderness at the dawn of the mountain man era. The only requirement: she cannot tell anyone that she's from the future.

How did a white woman suddenly appear in the remote Rocky Mountain wilderness? Trapper Daniel Osborne's first instinct is to protect this mysterious and unconventional woman from the harsh realities of his mountains. While he fights his growing attraction to her, he is left frustrated by her lies and secrecy.

Daniel shows Aimee a side of Yellowstone she's never experienced. She is torn between her feelings for him, and exposing a secret that will destroy everything he holds as truth. As her three months come to an end, she is faced with a dilemma: return to her own time, or stay with the man who opened her eyes to a whole new world. When the decision is made for her, both their lives will be changed forever.
