Description
"The Wylie Camping Company welcomed tourists to Yellowstone in 1882. Accommodations were simple: two canvas tents clustered around a huge fire pit, where guests gathered to sing songs and enjoy impromptu entertainment. Simple, but effective, this 'new method' of travel brought Victorian tourists up close to the wildlife and the natural wonders of the nation's first national park. During Yellowstone's stagecoach era from 1878 to 1916, camping in Yellowstone National Park with the Wylie Camping Company became synonymous with economy, informality, down-to-earth employees, and absorbing guided tours through the Park's natural wonders. Wylie's story is an untold history of early-frontier life"--Provided by publisher.
