Searching for Yellowstone : ecology and wonder in the last wilderness by Paul Schullery ( Book )
5 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 1,361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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
Myth and history in the creation of Yellowstone National Park by Paul Schullery ( )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 1,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Yellowstone National Park, a global icon of conservation and natural 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. In this evocative exploration of Yellowstone's creation myth, the authors trace the evolution of the legend, its rise to incontrovertible truth, and its revelation as a mysterious and troubling episode that remains part folklore, part wish, and part history. This study demonstrates the passions stirred by any challenge to cherished national memories, just as it honors the ideals and dreams represented by our national myths
