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

This is a very short account of Evert's survival in Yellowstone when he is separated from his survey/exploration party in 1870. He had no equipment, food or warm clothing and somehow managed to survive. He was finally found in a desperately weak near death conditon. The bulk of the recording is E...more

Enamored by the beauty of the wilderness walk in the redwoods from this morning I picked out the Ken Burns National Parks documentary to watch. It mentioned this crazy story of Truman Evert - his getting lost in Yellowstone (1870), trying to stay alive for thirty-seven days and his eventual rescu...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 suppli...more

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...more

Interesting to think about, not very interestingly written.

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

Everts was either really unlucky or really lucky... either way, incredible story. Having been to Yellowstone recently, it was all the more intriguing to recognize the places he described and know where his route took him. This is a great edition of his story, too, as it includes copious notes and...more

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...more

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 edi...more
