Imagine my delight, while gazing upon the animated expanse of water, at seeing sail out from a distant point a large canoe containing a single oarsman. It was rapidly approaching the shore where I was seated. With hurried steps I paced the beach to meet it, all my energies stimulated by the assurance it gave of food, safety and restoration to friends. As I drew near to it it turned towards the shore, and oh! bitter disappointment, the object which my eager fancy had transformed into an angel of relief stalked from the water, an enormous pelican, flapped its dragon-wings, as if in mockery of my sorrow, and flew to a solitary point farther up the lake.

Thistle Root for Food, Yuck!

This story should not be lost to the ages. It's an amazing story of what the human body can endure when a person's mindset is positive. Everts was an inexperienced, near-sighted, "wannabe" mountaineer. He had no business being on an expedition team and yet, he found himself separated from his group.

I decided to read it again- anyone interested in the history of Yellowstone will like this true story of survival as written and published in the newspap

Interesting to think about, not very interestingly written.
