Oh, Ranger! a book about the national parks
a book about the national
by Horace M. Albright and Frank J. Taylor.
This is a reprint of the classic, 1928 edition. Here is a nostalgic look at America's early national parks and their ranger service by their director of that time. Author Albright was also a long-time superintendent of Yellowstone National Park. Originally published in 1928 by Stanford University Press, and available continuously ever since, this book relates humorous stories of bears and other wild animals, Indians, fishing, park "dudes and sagebrushers" (hotel guests and campers, respectively), the fledgling ranger service, and the antics of the American tourist early in the roaring '20s. This edition includes the late author's last foreword and a tribute from a former president and early Yellowstone ranger, Gerald Ford.
To the pen-and-ink drawings from the original have been added 50 early park photographs. 160 pages.
