Women in Wonderland
Women in Wonderland: Lives, Legends and Legacies of Yellowstone National Park by Elizabeth A. Watry - This book profiles undaunted women who made their mark on Yellowstone National Park. The women profiled in the book range from Marguerite "Peg" Arnold, an intrepid adventurer who drove a Harley Davidson motorcycle from Philadelphia to Yellowstone in 1924 and was the first woman to become a permanent ranger in the National Park Service, to Dr. Mary Meagher, an expert on Yellowstone's bison and overall park ecology, who blazed a path for women scientists in the park service. Among the early pioneers in the tourist trade were sisters Anna Trischman Pryor and Belle Trischman with their "Devil's Kitchenette," and Ida "Mom" Eagle of the Eagle's Store in West Yellowstone. 2012.
