THE ASCENT OF MOUNT HAYDEN, GRAND TETON, 1872: a new chapter of Western Discovery.
by Nathaniel Pitt Langford.

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. Reprint from Scribner's Monthly.

Illustrations from Thomas Moran and others, 24 pages. ISBN-10: 0-89646-066-5. ISBN-13: 978-0-89646-066-9. Order #VIST0066 paper$3.95

 

 

THE YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK
by John Muir.

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 leaves."
Tips on how to travel in the park around the turn-of the-century are included!

Illustrated with drawings and engravings by Thomas Moran and others. 80 pages, 6 x 9, coated stock. ISBN 978-0-89646-101-7. Order #VIST0101 paper$7.95
