Item Information

Title:
Yellowstone National Park : from surveys made under the direction of F.V. Hayden and other authorities
Description:
America Transformed: During the last half of the 19th century, Americans expressed concern about the environmental costs of clearing forests, mining, and flourishing industries. Early conservation advocates sought to preserve the spectacular scenery as well as the land, water, and forests. However, the driving mission of the national parks movement—to preserve natural landscapes untouched by human interference—involved the systemic oppression and removal of Native people. In 1872, Congress designated the headwaters of the Yellowstone River in northwestern Wyoming as the first national park. The pursuit of a pristine wilderness necessitated the forcible removal of the Bannock and Shoshone people from Yellowstone.
