First published in 1977, the revised edition of this two-volume set presents some new photographs as well as a somewhat revised text. It covers the Park from its prehistory to the dilemmas faced by the public's increased use of the Park. The history concludes sometime around the late 1960s. Good maps and historic photographs. Both volumes available separately, $19.95 each.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
The Yellowstone Story traces the history of the Yellowstone region from the time when hunters and gatherers migrated into the Rocky Mountains thousands of years ago to the post-World War II era when tourists began inundating Yellowstone National Park. Volume I takes the account from prehistoric times through the mid-1880s, with emphasis on the park's exploration and its trouble-filled early years under federal management. Volume II covers the years of military administration of the park and the more recent developments under the National Park Service.
