Includes excerpts from The Discovery of Yellowstone Park: The Washburn Expedition. Around the campfire in September 1870, a small group of men who had just spent more than a month wandering in what they called ?Wonderland? came up with an amazing idea: Let's work to make this amazing landscape into a park that belongs to all of the American people. Which they did. Now, a contemporary landscape photographer's color images accompany excerpts from the journal of that trek, published as The Discovery of Yellowstone Park by expedition member Nathaniel Pitt Langford. Text and pictures combine to give readers the same experience of discovery that those nineteenth-century explorers enjoyed.
