You've seen the geysers and waterfalls, the mudpots and mountains, in one of the most magnificent places in the world. Now read the stories from the history of Yellowstone National Park. From the wild adventures of early park visitors to the massive fires of 1988, It Happened in Yellowstone provides a quick tour through the history of this amazing area. Twenty-four stories give a behind-the-scene look at some of the extraordinary events that took place in this park. You'll marvel at one man's struggle to survive thirty-seven days alone in Yellowstone, laugh at a little boy's pranks on unwary tourists, and watch as wolves are tentatively reintroduced to the park. Early visitors called this place 'Wonderland,' and the natural wonders here are only some of the highlights of Yellowstone's entertaining history. Yellowstone National Park has many wondrous stories to tell, and this book offers some of the best. (6 X 9, 112 pages)
