Storytelling in Yellowstone

storytellinginYellowstone National Park is a natural wonder and rich in history. While this book touches on the history, the focus is on those who first saw the grandeur of Yellowstone and how they got the word out about this spectacular place.

They were the early storytellers, the trappers and Mountain Men such as John Colter and Jim Bridger, who returned to the East with their stories of geysers, great basins and valleys, and yet no one believed them. Eventually, early tour guides and photographers brought the natural wonderland to the East and the world. This tale of the storytellers of Yellowstone shows how they endured to make the Yellowstone area a great national park. —Linda Wommack
