'People of Yellowstone' features 87 stunning portraits and real-life stories of the people who maintain Yellowstone National Park's wildness, lead expeditions, collect scientific data, wrangle horses, document seismic activity, study wildlife, rescue stranded hikers, and much more. Steve Horan spent more than five years photographing over 120 people who work in and around Yellowstone National Park. Award-winning writer Ruth W. Crocker interviewed each portrait subject, and her essays provide a narrative for Horan's photographs and details of each person’s experience in the park.
