Book Cover

A new Yellowstone National Park book by Susan and Jack Davis

This new book is based on Yellowstone Park postcard messages. There are 925 postcard messages dating from 1900 to 1981. Chapters in the book include the Roosevelt Arch, Mammoth Hot Springs, Old Faithful Geyser and Old Faithful Inn, Geysers and Hot Springs, Yellowstone Lake and Fishing, Wildlife and Bears, Stagecoaches, Autos and Buses, Camping, and Gateway Communities. The postcard messages are personal narratives and were written in the moment by tourists. They are throw backs from the past, before the Internet and social media. Sit back and enjoy the handwritten messages sent through the mail to family and friends.

After all, who doesn't like to read someone else's mail?
