Rediscovering Wonderland

Indiebound / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / Books A Million / Rowman & Littlefield.

This book tells 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.
