Rough Trip Through Yellowstone

Rough Trip Through Yellowstone Lowest new price: $8.21
Lowest used price: $4.70
List price: $14.95
Author: Emerson Hough
Brand: Ingramcontent

In the winter of 1894, the magazine Forest and Stream sent one of its most talented writers, Emerson Hough, to Yellowstone National Park to document the decline in bison. Under the tutelage of legendary guide Billy Hofer, Hough learned to ski on 12-foot-long wooden slats. He witnessed the arrest of notorious poacher Ed Howell caught red-handed skinning a bison and met pioneering photographer F. Jay Haynes. Undertaking a tough, 200-mile trip on skis, Hough, Haines and Hofer came up with the best census of the park s bison and elk that anyone had yet achieved. Hough wrote up the expedition in a series of 14 articles. The series motivated the United States Congress to pass the anti-poaching Lacey Act and helped turn public opinion against a proposed railroad through the park. Moreover, Hough s articles are immensely entertaining. He remains one of the wittiest writers ever to describe the park, and his series, edited and annotated by University of California writing professor Scott Herring, is as fun to read as it is historically significant. Includes nine Yellowstone National Park photos by F. Jay Haynes.

Lost in My Own Backyard: A Walk in Yellowstone National Park (Crown Journeys)

Lost in My Own Backyard: A Walk in Yellowstone National Park (Crown Journeys) Lowest new price: $14.50
Lowest used price: $1.46
List price: $16.95
Author: Tim Cahill
Brand: Crown

“Let’s get lost together . . . ”

Lost in My Own Backyard brings acclaimed author Tim Cahill together with one of his—and America’s—favorite destinations: Yellowstone, the world’s first national park. Cahill has been “puttering around in the park” for a quarter of a century, slowly covering its vast scope and exploring its remote backwoods. So does this mean that he knows what he’s doing? Hardly. “I live fifty miles from the park,” says Cahill, “but proximity does not guarantee competence. I’ve spent entire afternoons not knowing exactly where I was, which is to say, I was lost in my own backyard.”

Cahill stumbles from glacier to geyser, encounters wildlife (some of it, like bisons, weighing in the neighborhood of a ton), muses on the microbiology of thermal pools, gets spooked in the mysterious Hoodoos, sees moonbows arcing across waterfalls at midnight, and generally has a fine old time walking several hundred miles while contemplating the concept and value of wilderness. Mostly, Cahill says, “I have resisted the urge to commit philosophy. This is difficult to do when you’re alone, twenty miles from the nearest road, and you’ve just found a grizzly bear track the size of a pizza.”

Divided into three parts—“The Trails,” which offers a variety of favorite day hikes; “In the Backcountry,” which explores three great backcountry trails very much off the beaten track; and “A Selected Yellowstone Bookshelf,” an annotated bibliography of his favorite books on the park—this is a hilarious, informative, and perfect guide for Yellowstone veterans and first-timers alike. Lost in My Own Backyard is adventure writing at its very best.

Travels in the Greater Yellowstone

Travels in the Greater Yellowstone Lowest new price: $14.92
Lowest used price: $3.37
List price: $21.99
Author: Jack Turner
Brand: Jack Turner

Award-winning nature writer Jack Turner directs his attention to one of America's greatest natural treasures: the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. In a series of essays, Turner explores this wonderland, venturing on twelve separate trips in all seasons using various modes of travel. He treks down the Teton Range, picks up the Oregon Trail in the Red Desert, and floats the South Fork of the Snake River. Along the way he encounters a variety of wildlife: moose, elk, trout, and wolves. From the treacherous mountains in the dead of winter to lush river valleys in the height of fishing season, his words and steps trace one of the most American of experiences―exploring the West.

Turner―who has lived in Grand Teton for three decades―designates the Greater Yellowstone as ground zero for the country's conflict between preservation and development, and his accounts of the area's conflicts with alien species, logging, real estate, oil, and gas development are alarming.

A mixture of adventure, nostalgia, and Americana, Turner's rare experiences and evocative writing transform the sights and sounds of Greater Yellowstone into an intimate narrative of travel through America's most beloved lands.

Lost in the Yellowstone: "Thirty-Seven Days of Peril" and a Handwritten Account of Being Lost Lowest new price: $10.01
Lowest used price: $10.35
List price: $14.95
Author: Truman Everts

In 1870, Truman Everts visited what would two years later become Yellowstone National Park, traveling with an exploration party intent on mapping and investigating that mysterious region. Scattered reports of a mostly unexplored wilderness filled with natural wonders had caught the public’s attention and the fifty-four-year-old Everts, near-sighted and an inexperienced woodsman, had determined to join the expedition. He was soon separated from the rest of the party and from his horse, setting him on a grueling quest for survival. For over a month he wandered Yellowstone alone and injured, with little food, clothing, or other equipment. In “Thirty-seven Days of Peril” he recounted his experiences for the readers of Scribner’s Monthly.

In June 1996, Everts’s granddaughter arrived at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park to meet with park archivist Lee Whittlesey. She brought two documents that her father had kept hidden and both were handwritten by Everts. One was a brief autobiography that gave new insight into his early life. The other was a never-published alternative account of his confused 1870 journey through Yellowstone. Both have been added to this volume, further enhancing Everts’s unlikely tale of survival.

Walking Down the Wild: A Journey Through The Yellowstone Rockies

Walking Down the Wild: A Journey Through The Yellowstone Rockies Lowest new price: $4.95
Lowest used price: $3.00
List price: $12.00
Author: Gary Ferguson
Brand: Brand: FalconGuides

A seasoned naturalist vividly recounts his 500-mile trek through the rugged northern folds of the Yellowstone Rockies.

In Walking Down the Wild Gary Ferguson offers a good-natured account of a 500-mile hike through the mountains and valleys and geyser fields that make up Yellowstone National Park and its environs. Anyone who has made a long trek will appreciate Ferguson's catalog of moleskin patches, fungicides, and mosquito repellents, but not many folks have had to figure out how to ward off bears every night (pee around your campsite, he advises), steer clear of the occasional cantankerous bull moose, and avoid stepping into steel- jawed traps. It's clear that Ferguson loves his self-appointed mission to protect the Yellowstone ecosystem, and he has a lot to say. "The horizon of the American West," he warns, "is framed more and more not by wild, ragged patches of stone and timber, but by clear-cuts and mine tailings, by housing developments, by oil derricks blazing in what only yesterday was a dark and secret sky."
