Myth and history in the creation of Yellowstone National Park by Paul Schullery( )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 1,766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Does a beloved institution need its own myths to survive? Can conservationists avoid turning their heroes into legends? Should they try? Yellowstone National Park, a global icon of conservation and national beauty, was born at the most improbable of times: the American Gilded Age, when altruism seemed extinct and society's vision seemed focused on only greed and growth. Perhaps that is why the park's "creation myth" portrayed a few saintlike pioneer conservationists laboring to set aside this unique wilderness against all odds. In fact, the establishment of Yellowstone was the result of complex social, scientific, economic, and aesthetic forces. its creators were not saints but mortal humans with the full range of ideals and impulses known to the species. Authors Paul Schullery and Lee Whittlesey, both longtime students of Yellowstone's complex history, present the first full account of how the fairy tale origins of the park found universal public acceptance, and the long, painful process by which the myth was reconsidered and replaced with a more realistic and ultimately more satisfying story."--BOOK JACKET

Searching for Yellowstone is the first environmental history of one of America's greatest and most far-reaching experiments. Combining exhaustive research with twenty-five years of experience at Yellowstone, Paul Schullery paints a dramatically new picture of the park and its meaning to the world, showing how Yellowstone's "discovery" by whites followed 10,000 years of occupation and use by native Americans, and how the park's founding became a creation myth for the conservation movement

And because not everyone can be both, we praise him as an American original.""--James Prosek, author of Trout: An Illustrated History and The Complete Angler ""Few have as much passion for fly-fishing as Paul Schullery, and even fewer have his endless curiosity about the history of the sport, but it is his awesome talent as a writer that makes Royal Coachman such fine and fun reading. He makes his passion, and his knowledge, so compelling that they become yours as much as his.""--Gary LaFont

The mountain men by George Laycock( Book )

To know how the West was really won, start with the exploits of these unsung mountain men who, like the legendary Jeremiah Johnson, were real buckskin heroes. Preceded only by Lewis and Clark, beaver fur trappers roamed the river valleys and mountain ranges of the West, surviving on fish and game, fighting or trading with the Native Americans - forever heading toward the untamed wilderness. In this story of rough, heroic men and their worlds, Laycock weaves historical facts with profiles of individual trappers, including harrowing escapes, feats of supreme courage and endurance, and sometimes violent encounters with grizzly bears and Native Americans -- Back cover
