As people travel through Yellowstone National Park each day, they often come across buildings or points of interest along the roadway for which there is no publicly-accessible background information. Every single day the park's rangers, tour guides, and concession employees field hundreds of questions about these sites. And many have said, "There ought to be a book..." Well, now there is! If you've ever wondered to yourself: What's that group of buildings behind the Old Faithful Inn? Why does the road go this way when it used to go that way? What's down that unmarked, gated-off road just north of here? What happened to that old building that used to be over there ten years ago? Why do the buildings in one location look so vastly different from those in other locations? Why does that feature have the name it does and what's the history behind it? Then this book is for you. It is intended for a variety of audiences including park rangers newly assigned to Yellowstone, park employees, tour guides, researchers, and visitors who wish to have a more in-depth understanding of the microhistory of the individual points of interest throughout the park. The book has hundreds of pages of information previously known only to a handful of long-time park employees and historians. Yellowstone Mileposts is composed of two major sections. The first provides the reader with a mile-by-mile guide to the more than 400 miles of park roads, complete with GPS coordinates. The second is a building-by-building history of all of the significant tructures in the park's nine commercial developments. It is one of the most comprehensive guides to Yellowstone National Park available to the public.

Yellowstone National Park is one of the earth’s most famous places. Established in 1872 as the world’s first national park, it has preserved remarkable natural wonders like Old Faithful Geyser and cultural icons such as Old Faithful Inn. For centuries, it was home to the Shoshone, Crow, Bannock, Blackfeet, and other Indian tribes, but these groups were banished in the 1870s by park
promoters who feared that tourists would not visit if American Indians lived there. Almost immediately after its establishment, Yellowstone became the primary destination for tourist travel to the American West following the Civil War. By 1900, it was a vast tourist success, and today it is both a world biosphere preserve and a world heritage site.

He and his brothers established the world's first "Dude Ranch" in Medora, North Dakota, and in 1904 moved the Eaton Ranch to Wolf, Wyoming. Howard began taking Dudes on 15 and 20 day trips through Yellowstone with as many as 100 people on horseback, including all the food, tents and other requirements for ..".taking a leisurely riding tour through the Park, roughing it in comfort."

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

List price: $16.95
Author: Tim Cahill
“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.
