About this book

Daily record of Ferdinand Hayden's historic 1871 scientific expedition through Utah, Idaho, and Montana Territories to the Yellowstone Basin. The expedition's findings quickly led Congress to establish Yellowstone as the world's first national park.
`Nobody who seeks a deeper understanding of Yellowstone's natural systems as they were in 1871, or how nineteenth-century science was yoked to westward expansion, should miss this remarkable piece of editing and scholarly reconstruction.' Nature

Nobody who seeks a deeper understanding of Yellowstone's natural systems as they were in 1871, or how nineteenth-century science was yoked to westward expansion, should miss this remarkable piece of editing and scholarly reconstruction. Nature "Well conceived, beautifully produced... This volume belongs on the shelf of everyone interested in Yellowstone National Park or in the larger story of how the geological surveys mixed science, government, and the lure of adventure to create a vision of the West that endures today." Annals of Wyoming
