Adventures in Yellowstone
Adventures In Yellowstone tells gripping first-person accounts of the early years of America’s most cherished national park. After its establishment in 1872, Yellowstone National Park was sufficiently famous and a surprising number of people risked bear maulings, Indian attacks, and geyser burns just to glimpse its wonders. Many of those who survived wrote about their adventures. The best of those Yellowstone stories are collected here, in Adventures in Yellowstone. From Osborne Russell’s colorful early accounts of the daily lives of mountain men in the 1840s, to Eleanor Corthell, who in 1903 took her seven children on a two-month, 1,200-mile tour of the park by wagon, each story opens a new window on a long-overlooked aspect of our nation’s history.
