Caveat up front: I listened to the abridged version from

A good travelogue should inspire the reader (or listener) to immediately drop tools and take off on their own adventure. Lost in My Own Backyard does not quite have the impact necessary for that. Instead, it is less a travel guide than a journal, although still fun and a good read / listen. The author takes us with him as he walks through the further reaches of Yellowstone Park, giving us the guided tour of the sights and hazards. Like grizzly bears.

The abridged audio book is read by the author himself and is quite enjoyable. Mr. Cahill does not have the typical "radio voice" but he is quite good at managing to sound as though he is not reading the story but merely telling it to you, perhaps over a campfire.

At just over two hours, this version is well worth the time and effort involved in listening.
