Two years before the creation of our first National Park, Truman Everts got lost in Yellowstone. He lost not one, but two horses. He set not one, but two forest fires. He waited out a mountain lion in a tree. He slept in a bear's den. He fell through the crust of a hot spring and burnt his hip. He keeled over into his campfire while hallucinating. He spent 37 days making bad decision after worse, and he survived.
On this episode of the America's National Parks Podcast, we present our abridged version of Everts' 10,000-word essay, which shocked the nation - complete with the sounds of Yellowstone from the National Park Service's archives.
