A Ride to the Infernal Regions: Yellowstone's First Tourists
A little-known and previously unavailable account of the first tourist party to Yellowstone National Park. In 1871, inspired by sketchy reports of Yellowstone's wonders, six Montanans made a horseback trip to see the park's geysers, lakes, and canyons. Lively and well-written with a detailed introduction and narrative footnotes. Yellowstone National Park Historian, Lee Whittlesey, says Great job! An outstanding publication that fills a big void.
