CJ Box and Yellowstone National Park
The one thing about a great read is that it opens your mind and inspires your imagination. It takes you on an armchair journey and wakens your curiosity. Some of the places this book led me to were Ken Rockwell's exquisite photographs of some of the hot springs found in Yellowstone as well as photo's of the Old Faithful Inn. I also find the idea of the whole of Yellowstone as a super caldera waiting to blow at any moment very interesting.
Although CJ Box's stories are set in a similar environment to Nevada Barr, his style is very different. If you are a Nevada Barr or a Tony Hillerman fan, then I am sure that CJ Box is going to become a firm favourite on your must read list.
