An Event: Getting Ready for a Presentation to “Smart Women”

Women on the Rim of Yellowstone Canyon — 1904

I’ve been working on my presentation on Yellowstone history that’s scheduled for Wednesday at 3 p.m. at Aspen Pointe, an independent living facility run by Deaconess Hospital in Bozeman. I’ll be speaking to a group called “Smart Women” so I’ve decided to talk about women’s adventures in the park.

As I plan my presentation, I find I have my usual frustration—deciding what to read to my audience.  My collection of first-person accounts of early travel to Yellowstone Park includes dozens of stories about women. Can you help me choose?  Take a look around this blog and decide which stories would be most interesting. Then tell me your thoughts by posting them under “Comments” below.

To get you started, here are links to some of my favorites:

Thanks!  I’ll let you know how things go.

  1. The October Storm at Yellowstone Canyon story sounds great. This time of year everyone can relate to bad weather and unexpected storms.

    We are looking forward to your presentation.
