Biographical or Historical Information

This book gives a good idea of the perspective of Yellowstone by the National Pacific Railway in the year of 1915. 1915 was the last year that the military was responsible in maintaining the park and the railways were becoming more apart of the tourist experience at Yellowstone. This book shows a snapshot of this year and what Yellowstone was like during this time.
