GOSA (The Geyser Observation and Study Association) Geyser Books  

The Geysers of Yellowstone


The must have book for any geyser gazer is T. Scott Bryan's, The Geysers of Yellowstone Third Edition, University Press of Colorado, 463 pages, ISBN 0-87081-365-x, $19.95.

As stated by Scientific American the book is "A tribute to and a tool for the geyser gazer.... Any visitor to Yellowstone for whom geysers carry an appeal at all needs the guide."

The back cover states correctly that "This completely revised popular field guide describes in detail each of the more than 300 geysers of Yellowstone National Park. With data current to 1994 and twenty-four new photographs, Geysers of Yellowstone is designed as both a reference work and a fine introduction to the nature of geyser activity for the newcomer to geothermal phenomena. A glossary of key terms is provided, and a comprehensive appendix discusses other geyser areas of the world. Detailed maps accompany each geyser basin described, and tables are provided for ready reference."

This book can be ordered through the Yellowstone Association or through your local bookstore.
