Jonathan V. Last is a talented writer for The Weekly Standard who has also written some funny parenting books. Last summer he took his son to Yellowstone, and in the planning phase he found our guide book and wrote a nice review on our Amazon book page. After the trip he wrote this heartwarming and humorous story about it, give it a quick read if you have 10 minutes and want to be inspired to do something fun with your kids.
One of the most helpful guide books I've read for any destination. The same level of in-depth knowledge and clear communication you'd expect from a top-shelf series like Lonely Planet, but for a very particular niche: Parents traveling with kids. Can't imagine planning a Yellowstone trip with kids without this book. - Jonathan V. Last
