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

6 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 344 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

"In September 1870, Truman Everts was separated from one of the first exploratory parties in what is now Yellowstone National Park.

Nobody else has been lost so long in Yellowstone and survived." "This is one of the West's most fantastic dramas, high adventure in every sense of the word." "Lost in the Yellowstone contains Truman Everts's original high-adventure chronicle of hardship and survival, newly augmented with biographical and background information."--Jacket

Lost in the Yellowstone : "Thirty-seven days of peril" and a handwritten account of being lost by Truman Everts( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The incredible true adventure of the only person known to have survived so long while lost in Yellowstone wilderness. When Truman Evert visited the Yellowstone area in 1870, the Yellowstone belonged to myth. Scattered reports of a mostly unexplored wilderness filled with natural wonders caught the public's--and Evert's--attention. Although fifty-four, nearsighted, and an inexperienced woodsman, he joined the expedition determined to map and investigate the mysterious Yellowstone. Separated from his party, and then abandoned by his horse, Evert embarked on one of the most grueling survival adventures recorded on the American frontier. For thirty-seven days he wandered Yellowstone alone, injured, and without food save that which he could scrape from an unfriendly land. Truman Evert's story manifests the qualities we associate with the great explorers: endurance, determination, inventiveness, and courage in the face of unendurable hardship. Lost in the Yellowstone is an inspiration, and a testament to one man's will to survive"--

Fort Yellowstone by Elizabeth A Watry( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On August 17, 1886, Capt. Moses Harris and the troops of Company M rode into Yellowstone to take over guardianship of America's first national park. Receiving orders thereupon that the company was staying indefinitely, Captain Harris ordered the construction of Camp Sheridan. Seeing no end in sight for this "temporary" duty, the US War Department established Fort Yellowstone in 1891. For 32 years, ceremonial splendor of the US Army filled this era of Yellowstone with booming cannons at sunrise and sunset, crackling rifle-range practices, flashing saber drills, exacting military maneuvers, and dashing dress parades led by the regimental band. With the creation of the National Park Service in 1916, the Army began a two-year administrative transition and formally abandoned Fort Yellowstone in October 1918

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blair has painstakingly reconstructed the art, views and vision of a man who devoted his life to preserving the legacy of the American West-and it is a fascinating story.-Dean Knudsen, Historian, Scotts Bluff National Monument, National Park Service Of the many published accounts to come out of William Henry Jackson's long career, The Pioneer Photographer, first published in 1929, is widely accepted as Jackson's most trusted autobiography of his early pioneering days and his first eight years (1870-1878) as the official photographer for the U.S. Geological Survey. This reconstruction of Jackson's classic work, long out of print, presents one hundred sixty photographs and early drawings, paintings and lithographs by America's best-known landscape photographer, drawing on Jackson's diaries, other published accounts, and importantly his annotations of The Pioneer Photographer to create a complete and multidimensional view of the unfolding nineteenth-century American West. Editor Bob Blair has significantly expanded Jackson's original autobiography, reprinted here in full with the author's annotations, with seventy additional photographs, drawings, and paintings, and extensive excerpts from Jackson's writings, much of the new material drawn from archives and historical collections and never before published. - Publisher
