This landscape of towering mountains and a broad, flat plain is t as simple as it might first appear. Why are the peaks higher in the middle of the range? How did the lakes form? why is the valley filled with round rocks? This guidebook gives you the basic story, and where to go to see geologic features. With images by award-winning photographer Henry H. Holdsworth and text by Wyoming native Charles Craighead, it offers a clear and simple explanation for the scenery of Grand Teton National Park.
Charles Craighead grew up in Jackson Hole in a family of naturalists, was trained as a biologist and has worked on research projects ranging from Grizzly Bears to Golden Eagles. His desire to communicate the beauty and complexity of the natural world to the public eventually led to a career in writing. He lives in Moose, WY. A biologist with a background in animal behavior and environmental education, Henry H. Holdsworth has spent more than twenty years photographing wildlife and wilderness landscapes. Much of his work is centered on the natural history of threatened species. He lives in Jackson, WY.
