The Geysers of Yellowstone, Fifth Edition

by T. Scott Bryan

foreword by Lee Whittlesey


“A tribute to and a tool for the geyser gazers. . . . Any visitor to Yellowstone for whom geysers carry an appeal at all needs the guide.”
—Scientific American

The Geysers of Yellowstone tells the story of more than 700 springs, geysers, steam vents, and fumaroles in the park. And in Bryan’s naturalist–former park ranger hands, the stories are fascinating, hitting on the history, geography, and science of Yellowstone’s geothermal phenomena. He’s done pretty much all the work for us. There are maps, directions, descriptions, cautionary notes, photographs—you name it. All that’s left is to grab the guidebook, stuff it in a backpack, and head for hot water.”
The Missoulian

This new edition of The Geysers of Yellowstone is the most up-to-date and comprehensive reference to the geysers of Yellowstone National Park, describing in detail each of the more than five hundred geysers in the park. The entire text has been revised and geyser descriptions have been updated based on activity observed through early 2018. Information about a number of significant new geyser developments has been added, as well as recent knowledge about some of the world’s geyser fields outside Yellowstone.

Both a reference work and a fine introduction to the nature of geyser activity, this popular field guide includes a glossary of key terms, a comprehensive appendix that discusses other geyser areas of the world, detailed maps of each geyser basin, and tables for easy reference. The Geysers of Yellowstone will continue to serve geyser gazers as well as newcomers to geothermal phenomena for years to come.

T. Scott Bryan was a seasonal employee at Yellowstone National Park from 1970 through 1986. In addition to his studies in Yellowstone, he has been to geyser fields throughout the contiguous United States, Mexico, Japan, Fiji, New Zealand, and the Valley of Geysers on the Kamchatka Peninsula of Russia, leading the first-ever US study group there in 1991.
