After my first trip to the Greater Yellowstone area nearly a decade ago, I was hooked. The constantly changing landscape and incredible, abundant wildlife in Yellowstone and Grand Teton mean that there’s always something exciting to see and do. I love sharing the experiences and advice I’ve gathered over the years here, so think of me as your personal guide to the parks and gateway towns. I’m often just up the road in Montana, so that I can bring friends—and you—to the parks every chance I get. Award-winning photographer Jeff Vanuga, meanwhile, has shot the region for more than 20 years. —Brian Kevin, author

Born in 1905 and raised in Czechoslovakia, Eugene Fodor joined the U.S. Army’s psychological-warfare branch during World War II. He emerged a decorated war hero, thanks to his leadership in the liberation of Prague and Pilsen.
Multilingual and with extensive travel intelligence, Fodor began working for the CIA during the Cold War. His publishing career began in 1936 when Fodor created the first modern guidebook and many of his guidebook writers were undercover CIA agents. Fodor revolutionized the travel publishing industry, inspiring new generations to explore the world around them. An American, a Hungarian, a world citizen, a CIA agent, a war hero, a New York Times best-selling author, and an entrepreneur—Eugene Fodor was the spy who loved travel.
