Here's the latest about our Yellowstone books, graced with a sketch of Grotto and Rocket Geysers that Welshman Thomas H. Thomas painted into his sketchbook in 1884 and we've reproduced in Through Early Yellowstone. Feel free to forward this news! To unsubscribe, see the link at the end of this message.

Park news

Yellowstone bison and grizzly bears have both been in the news lately. The first bison calves of 2016 were spotted this month, but the ongoing culling of bison is still controversial. Grizzlies have been out of hibernation about two months, and the U.S. government has proposed removing the grizzly from the Endangered Species list. You can read some good news about bison in author Janet Chapple's recent blog post, "Yellowstone bison get room to roam at last." If, as we did, you missed the recent extra-long set of free admission days for National Park Week April 16-24 in honor of the National Park Service centennial this year, you have another chance August 25-28, when numerous special events are planned.

Several endorsements and reviews have already come in for Through Early Yellowstone: Adventuring by Bicycle, Covered Wagon, Foot, Horseback, and Skis, with historic travel accounts selected and annotated by Janet Chapple, to be released June 1, 2016.

  • “A fresh and exciting Yellowstone anthology featuring remarkable, untold stories, some astounding, newly discovered nineteenth-century art, insightful perspectives and a welcome, original voice in the park’s expansive literary saga.” —Peter Hassrick, Director Emeritus, Buffalo Bill Center of the West, April 6, 2016
