About this book

Yellowstone, a global icon of conservation and natural beauty, was born at the most improbable of times: the American Gilded Age, when social enlightenment seemed marginalised. Perhaps for this reason the park's "creation myth" portrayed a few saintly pioneer conservationists labouring to set aside this unique wilderness against all odds. The authors trace the evolution of this legend and its relation to fact.

Media reviews
This book is valuable because it offers a complex vision of the origins of the national park ideal rather than a simple campfire story, and it is accessible to general readers. It is also an interesting tale of the use, and possible misuse, of history.-Kathy S. Mason, Register of the Kentucky Historical Society -- Kathy S. Mason "Register of the Kentucky Historical Society"
