Let’s take a trip to 1881 where wild tales of “New Land Discovered with Yellowstone” stirs adventure inside a young boy with an even wilder heart, Truman. One snowy day, while hunting with his Pa, Truman (along with his horse Jasper) discover they are lost in the rugged Yellowstone wilderness.
His misfortune takes us on a thrilling journey through all of the famous sites of the Yellowstone National Park we all know and love today.
We know them today as the stops and pull offs of Yellowstone National Park, but Truman had no sign, no map, no Park Ranger guide. His stops include the eye-popping Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, the stunning Soda Butte Creek along the Lamar Valley, then the sparkly pools of Mammoth Hot Springs, the colorful Grand Prismatic Springs, and finally Old Faithful.
There may be bumps along the way, and maybe a mountain lion, but Truman’s quest for adventure can’t be tamed.
Inspired by the true life tale of Truman C. Everts, who got lost in a Discovery Expedition of the wilderness that became Yellowstone National Park. His thrilling, first hand account, “Thirty-Seven Days of Peril” was written for Scribner’s Monthly in 1871.
