Summary

The chilling tome that launched an entire genre of books about the sometimes gruesome but always tragic ways people have died in our national parks, this updated edition of a classic includes calamities in Yellowstone from the past sixteen years, including the infamous grizzly bear attacks in the summer of 2011 as well as a fatal hot springs accident in 2000 in which the Park Service was sued for negligence. Written with sensitivity as cautionary tales about what and what not to do in one of our wildest national parks, these accounts range from tragedy to folly as Whittlesey recounts deaths from freak avalanches to the goring of a photographer who just got a little too close to a bison. Armchair travelers and park visitors alike will be fascinated by this important book detailing the dangers awaiting in our first national park.
