The Yellowstone Story traces the history of the Yellowstone region from the time when hunters and gatherers migrated into the Rocky Mountains thousands of years ago to the post-World War II era when tourists began inundating Yellowstone National Park. Volume I takes the account from prehistoric times through the mid-1880s, with emphasis on the park's exploration and its trouble-filled early years under federal management. Volume II covers the years of military administration of the park and the more recent developments under the National Park Service.

About the Author:

Aubrey L. Haines, now retired, is the former park historian at Yellowstone National Park and author of Yellowstone Place Names.

Review:

"Aubrey Hains's two-volume set on Yellowstone National Park is the authoritative history of the first American national park. Now in an updated edition, with new photographs and a revised text, The Yellowstone Story covers the park from prehistoric times through the Native Americans and early explorers to the establishment of the park and increasing use. It concludes with a discussion of the alternative policy choices that park administrators and the public will confront in the near future. Comprehensive in its scope and delightfully entertaining in its detail, The Yellowstone Story is vital reading for all visitors and historians interested in one of our country's most popular wilderness parks. Haines is also the author a companion volume, Yellowstone Place Names: Mirrors Of History (838-8 $17. 50) in which the many names of Yellowstone are put into proper historical perspective by grouping place names according to the time of their appearance and the circumstances of their naming. A rich and engaging context which will further promote the enjoyment of park visitors and anyone interested in western history."
—Midwest Book Review
