Own a Piece of History

The National Park Service celebrates its Centennial this year and to commemorate this milestone National Geographic Magazine will be releasing a special single-topic issue on Yellowstone National Park, America’s first national park. In addition to the issue focusing on one topic, this is the first time in the history of National Geographic, that all content has been penned by one person. Chosen to write this special issue is author, journalist and friend of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, David Quammen.

Mr. Quammen has agreed to sign a limited number of copies and with your gift of $100 to the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, you will receive this special signed edition. These will be made available only through Greater Yellowstone Coalition.

100% of the proceeds from this fundraiser go directly back into the programs which help us protect the very topic of this special edition of National Geographic - The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, The Wild Heart of North America.

DAVID QUAMMEN is an author and journalist whose fourteen books include The Song of the Dodo (1996), The Reluctant Mr. Darwin (2007), and Spillover (2012), a work on the science, history, and human impacts of emerging diseases (especially viral diseases), which was short-listed for eight national and international awards and won three (including the Merck Prize, given in Rome).  More recently he has published Ebola: The Natural and Human History of a Deadly Virus and The Chimp and the River: How AIDS Emerged from an African Forest, both drawn largely from Spillover.  Quammen is a Contributing Writer for National Geographic, in whose service he travels often, usually to wild places.  He has also written for many other magazines, ranging from Harper’s, The Atlantic and The New York Times Book Review to Rolling Stone, Outside and Powder.  Much of his work is focused on ecology and evolutionary biology, frequently garnished with history and travel.  In 2012 he received the Stephen Jay Gould Prize from the Society for the Study of Evolution.  Quammen has lived in Montana for 43 years, and in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem for most of that time.  His home is in Bozeman, where he shares a house and a small lot with his wife, Betsy Gaines Quammen, a conservationist at work on a doctorate in environmental history, and their family of other mammals
