About the Author

Gretel Ehrlich is the author of fourteen books of narrative essays, novels, poems, and travel writing, including Facing the Wave: A Journey in the Wake of a Tsunami (2013), This Cold Heaven: Seven Seasons in Greenland (2001), and A Match to the Heart (1994).

At the heart of this book is a message of partnership and collaboration among these groups. Both Riis and Middleton are quick to note that no single organization can preserve the migration routes on its own--so this book is, in part, an effort to raise awareness with as many groups and stakeholders as possible, including the general public.--Jennifer Billock "The Smithsonian "
This hardcover book shows how art and science together can make a difference in awareness, understanding, and policy, and underscores how these humble ungulates are "the lifeblood of the landscape" in middle America."--Scott Johnson "National Parks Traveler "
...a show-and-tell of the strength, beauty and vulnerability of the animals during their treks.It includes a section on highway barriers to migration and solutions.--Sharon Wootton "Everett Herald "
A book of stunning photographs of six wild species -- pronghorn, mule deer, elk, bison, moose and bighorn sheep -- making their way across the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Photos taken by Riis, a wildlife biologist turned photojournalist.--Mackenzie Dawson "New York Post "
"In Yellowstone Migrations, photojournalist and former wildlife biologist Joe Riis documents the movement of pronghorn, mule deer and elk through the region. His images show the many obstacles the animals face -- from fast-moving rivers to fences, highways, homes and other development."--Rebecca Worby "High Country News "
Simply put, this book is a gem. My work as a University of Montana geography professor focuses on the Crown of the Continent and Greater Yellowstone ecosystems. Yellowstone Country, especially, witnesses dynamic wildlife movement--a key subject in my courses. Other works have been published that have helped my teachings, but none like this one. For anyone with an interest in wild country and wildlife migration, it's all here.--Rick Graetz "Crown of the Continent and Greater Yellowstone Magazine "
Yellowstone Migrations by Joe Riis (Braided River, $29.95) is a beautiful and ambitious illustrated study of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and more particularly of the migratory patterns of the animals that call the region home. Riis, a wildlife biologist and award-winning photojournalist and cinematographer, has brought together essays by Gretel Ehrlich, Emilene Ostlind, Arthur Middleton, and Thomas Lovejoy, in addition to his own work. He richly populated the volume with stunning color maps and photographs that capture the constant movement of nature.... Taken together, the words of the essayists, along with the photos and maps, are moving and evocative, and make a strong case for preservation.--Erin H. Turner "Big Sky Journal "
