Early Travel in Yellowstone Park

Wednesday, January 30, 2013, from 2:30pm to 7:00pm
Hope Lutheran Church

Immerse yourself in what travelers experienced when they visited Yellowstone National Park beginning with the adventures of John Colter in 1807 and continuing through the 1910s when automobiles were first admitted. This non-credit course will focus on first-person accounts, their historical context, accuracy and literary merit. We will examine innovations that changed the Yellowstone experience, such as changes in policies governing hunting and feeding wildlife and the introduction of new infrastructure (road building, railroads and motorcars, and construction of campgrounds and hotels).

This course is offered by Wonderlust, a lifelong learning organization affiliated with MSU's Extended University. Wonderlust offers short once-a-week, non-credit, no-grades courses for adults in the greater Gallatin region.
