The Ascent of Mount Hayden, Grand Teton, 1872
a new chapter of Western discovery
historical reprint from VistaBooks
with illustrations by Thomas Moran
Trials and triumphs of what may have been the first party to climb the Grand Tetons of Wyoming, July 29, 1872. Author Langford was among the early explorers of the Yellowstone/Teton region and was first superintendent of Yellowstone National Park. His claim to a first ascent of the Grand Teton has been challenged by later parties, and former park naturalist McCurdy considers the various claims in the editor's preface. But regardless, the account still gives a fine record of what mountain climbing was like in the early days in this region. The story finishes with a visit to Yellowstone geysers and a meeting with government geologist Dr. Hayden who explored the Yellowstone region before it became a park and who now has this mountain in Grand Teton National Park named for him. Reprint from Scribner's Monthly. Illustrations from Thomas Moran and others, 24 pages. See sample pages, illustrations.
