New book explores the lives of Montanans & Wyomingites

CODY, Wyo. –Photo exhibitions all over America are getting people excited about a new book called, “People of Yellowstone.” The book explores the lives and passions of people who help protect Yellowstone National Park.

The book features dozens of people, including a park horse wrangler, a backcountry cook, and three Yellowstone Park Superintendents, including Dan Wenk.

It also features a scientist who helped create the natural history museum about Yellowstone, a Crow tribal elder, and even a winter innkeeper who saws through ten foot snowpacks on park building roofs. The black and white photos tell the stories of park rangers, bellhops, and bear and wolf biologists.
