The Yellowstone Faithful
Reviews and Readers' Comments
A dandy little page-turner...Mr. Hannon may have invented a whole new genre, the environmental thriller.
Hannon weaves a gripping, entertaining, highly recommended novel with engaging ideas about how we handle our national parks and the role special interest groups play in their management and policies.
--Midwest Book Review, Internet Bookwatch
The Yellowstone Faithful should be on the 'must read' list for anybody who
has worked at Yellowstone, and anybody who cares deeply about the park and

Hannons views on use
versus protectionism are intertwined with
an enjoyable and entertaining storyline that
envelopes many views of this struggle.
--The Jackson Hole Guide
This novel tells that story [use vs. protectionism] in very human terms, set against the backdrop of one of our great national parks.
Hannon illustrates Yellowstone's beauty with a pen so expertly that the image flourishes magically in the mind as if the reader is actually there.
In the short time this book has been available, we have been very ecouraged by the thoughts from our readers.
"I am just beginning chapter 9 and I can't put the book down. I take it to work with me and read it on my breaks and lunch breaks.
This book is so wonderful. I can't wait to see what the next chapter holds.
I just wanted to let you know I absolutely love this book."

"It was like revisiting YNP with a twist of suspense! Having been to a lot of places mentioned in your book it was like a mental movie as I read it. I found your book riveting and could not put it down"
"Just wanted to let you know that we just finished your new book, and really had a fun time reading it...I especially appreciated your ability to capture both the beauty of the park, and some of it's very real problems without 'spoiling' the story."
"Lot's of fun. Wished it was longer. Kyle did a good job. We had to laugh
this weekend after what happened in the park, almost made him seem
clairvoyiant. Anyone who enjoys Yellowstone should find this a fun read."
