Description

Camping out in Yellowstone, 1882 describes the park at a time when Yellowstone was truly an 'out-back and beyond' experience. Writing just five years after the army chased the Nez Peirce Indians through the area, and only ten years after the park's establishment, Mary Richards provides a vivid picture of the undeveloped and untouristed Yellowstone Park: Fire Hole Basin, Mammoth Hot Spring, Lower Falls, and the Excelsior Geyser, now defunct but mightier at the time than Old Faithful. Augmented by twenty-eight contemporary photographs, this book offers a fascinating perspective for present-day Park lovers.
