Expand your knowledge of Yellowstone National Park with a fun book! After its establishment in 1872, Yellowstone National Park was famous that numerous people risked bear maulings, Indian attacks, and geyser burns just to glimpse its wonders. A surprising number of those who survived wrote about their adventures. The Adventures in Yellowstone: Early Travelers Tell Their Tales by M. Mark Miller retells the stories collected in Yellowstone by early explorers of the park through a dozen narratives, journal entries, letters, and diaries!
M. Mark Miller is a fifth-generation Montanan who grew up on a ranch 90 miles from Yellowstone National Park. His interest in early park travel began when he was a young boy listening to his grandmother’s tales of baking bread in geysers and tossing red flannels into Old Faithful so its next eruption would be tinted pink. His fantastic articles on Yellowstone Park and Montana history have also appeared in the Big Sky Journal and the Pioneer Museum Quarterly.
