About the author

Montana native Janet Chapple has been savoring the atmosphere of Yellowstone Park since she was a child, when her parents worked at Old Faithful Inn. On her many visits since then, she has combined intensive personal observation with research year-round, reading widely, consulting experts, and attending Yellowstone Institute courses. Janet’s undergrad education was at Stanford and the University of Southern California, followed much later with a master’s degree in cello performance from Indiana University. After a long career in music in Rhode Island, including editing and writing for a music practice booklet, she turned to researching and writing about Yellowstone Park. She wrote and published four previous editions of Yellowstone Treasures, beginning in 2002. In 2013 she cotranslated with colleague Suzanne Cane an 1883 travelog called Yellowstone, Land of Wonders by Belgian travel writer Jules Leclercq, from French to English. In 2016 she selected and annotated the adventure stories in Through Early Yellowstone: Adventuring by Bicycle, Covered Wagon, Foot, Horseback, and Skis. She lives in Oakland, California. Janet Chapple is a Montana native whose parents once worked at Old Faithful Inn, the historic lodge in Yellowstone Park. She is the editor of the historical anthology Through Early Yellowstone (2016) and cotranslator of the English edition of Yellowstone, Land of Wonders (2013), an 1883 travelog by Belgian travel writer Jules Leclercq. She lives in Oakland, California.
