Staff Reviews


Emily's Staff Pick, August 2015: John Fielder's new book, Colorado's Yampa River, is a celebration of the beauty as well as the the ecological, economical, and educational importance of the Yampa River.

Tumbling from Skillet Lake on the tundra of the Flat Tops, the Yampa flows 249 miles to Dinosaur National Monument, where it converges with the Green River at Echo Park.

John Fielder and self-proclaimed "river rat" Patrick Tierney followed every mile of the Yampa. This book tells the story of their journey and so too the story of the Yampa.

Colorado's Yampa River contains John Fielder's characteristically stunning photographs, as well as his classic "then-and-now" photos. Patrick Tierney's text is soundly researched and well written. Combined, the photos, historical, and ecological information are a brilliant argument for the conservation of the Yampa River.  Colorado's Yampa River will make the perfect gift for your friends, family, or yourself!

Description


The Yampa River of northwest Colorado is considered the last major free flowing-river in the seven state Colorado River Basin. It cascades for 249 miles from high in the Rocky Mountains near Steamboat Springs and descends over 6,000 ft. from alpine tundra to parched desert.

Join Colorado nature photographer John Fielder and educator/river rat Patrick Tierney as they photograph and write their way down the entire length of the river from the Yampa's headwaters in the Flat Tops Wilderness at 11,500 ft. to its confluence with the Green River in Dinosaur National Monument. Between Fielder's sublime images of tundra wildflowers, eagles and elk, and the tributaries and canyons of the Yampa, and Tierney's discourse about the Yampa's human, natural, and political history, you will feel like you are rowing along with the authors.
