Through Early Yellowstone : Adventuring by Bicycle, Covered Wagon, Foot, Horseback, and Skis (Paperback)
About this item
An anthology of entertaining accounts of travel through Yellowstone, this book takes readers back to 1871, before it was a tourist destination, through the time when autos were allowed into the park. The adventurers include an intrepid mother who posted the sign “Park or Bust” on her family’s covered wagon, a strong cyclist and a hiker who traversed the whole park for fun, an expert guide on skis, and a New York horsewoman who presented park management with a plan for an interconnected circuit of bridle trails. Along with numerous historical photos and artwork, the book features a color gallery of watercolor paintings from 1884 by Thomas Henry Thomas, never seen before outside Wales.
