SIDESADDLES AND GEYSERS is an anthology of first person-accounts by women who toured Yellowstone Park more than a century ago includes tales of high adventure, raucous humor, and glorious sights of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Including a wide range of stories by women who visited from all over the world and at all ages, these accounts reveal their wonder at the interior of the park, the weeks they traveled on horseback through the roadless wilderness, and the later luxuries of well-maintained roads, comfortable carriages, and fancy hotels.

REDISCOVERING WONDERLAND is scheduled for publication on Feb. 1. It’s the story of the Washburn Expedition of 1870, a group of Montana officials and businessmen whose credibility could not be doubted like that of mountain men whose earlier descriptions were dismissed at “tall tales.” The expedition searched for all the wonders they had heard about — towering waterfalls, deep canyons, a giant lake and spouting geysers — and were awed when they found them. Their return is delayed by a summer snow storm and a search for a missing man. Truman Everts was lost alone in the wilderness for 37 days.
