Dividing books into parts

I'm wondering how to create Parts for bookdown projects. I first thought I was looking for Sections, but that language seems in Bookdown to refer to parts of chapters, but this would be a higher level organization. Examples I can see of this having been done create part headings that can't be navigated to directly but at least provide an organizational scheme:

Irrizary's Introduction to Data Science with parts
II Data Visualization

Xie, Allaire, Grolemund R Markdown: The Definitive Guide with parts:
I Getting Started
II Output Formats
III Extensions

Lovelace, Nowosad, Muenchow Geocomputation with R after chapter 1 there's
I Foundations
II Extensions
III Applications

I imagine this might use something in the _bookdown.yml file, but I don't have a clue what it would be.

You should maybe look at what bookdown calls PART header

They are special header that will help you structure you book in the sidebar.

See the navigation in R Markdown: The Definitive Guide and you'll see some Part headers

is this what you are looking for ?

Doh! Don't know how I missed that in the book. I'd already used that section to see how to handle the appendix. Thanks!
