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. This little incident quite unmanned me. The transition from joy to grief brought with it a terrible consciousness of the horrors of my condition. But night was fast approaching, and darkness would come with it. While looki. . . Read More

One of the craziest lost in the woods tales ever. Near-sighted assessor of internal revenue from Montana, for whatever reasons, joins an expedition to explore Yellowstone. One day, he gets off his horse to check out the trail and his horse wanders off leaving him stranded and alone without supplies.

I had no idea of Everts and his crazy adventure of surviving being Lost in Yellowstone during an exploratory trip just before it became a national park.

The book contains a map of where Everts became lost (Yellowstone Lake) but not where he was found (way north near Mammoth). I had to pull out a map of Yellowstone NP to locate the area. Then I realized what a Long Walk this poor man made.

Chronicle of Truman Everts and what happened when he became lost in the Yellowstone backcountry. If you like history, and love Yellowstone, this is a must read. From breaking his glasses to rolling over in the night into a hot spring, this historical account is riveting.

If it weren’t for bad luck Mr. Everts wouldn’t have had any luck at all. But I suppose considering he actually survived his thirty seven days lost in Yellowstone, that’s not quite true. It’s only knowing what he endured to get there, I make that assertion.

When Everts was found thirty-seven days aft

I read this story aloud to my kids years ago when we were camping and we still talk about this incredible true story every time we visit the park. 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.

Very nicely written (and narration by Jack Sondericker in this Books in Motion edition from Hoopla).

In 1870 while on an exploratory expedition in what is now Yellowstone National Park (formal park designation did not occur until 1872) Truman Everts became separated from the other members of his party. Despite his frantic attempts to relocate the others and their attempts to find him, he became hop

The first time I read this, I kept trying to imagine what it would have been like to survive in the wilds of Yellowstone before all the trappings of humanity had been added. Would I have made it out alive?

After reading this for a second time ... and I'm still awed by Everts' experiences. This editio
