Trials and triumphs of 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.

Here is what may well be Muir's most literary piece of nature writing, inspired not by
the Sierra Nevada he was more familiar with, but by the wonders of the Yellowstone region.
The text tells of the park's geysers, lakes, mountains, animals, flowers and trees,
petrified forest--of the "blessed old Yellowstone Wonderland." It is the source
for his oft-quoted phrase:
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's
peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own
freshness into you,
and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn
