"Yellowstone is vast, wild, unspoiled, a masterpiece of the primitive set aside in the fastness of the Rocky Mountains. It has lofty peaks, immense lakes, majestic rivers, wild flowers in profusion, forests living and fossil, glaciers at its borders - all in fact, that other parks contain - and in addition, the matchless canyon and the amazing geysers." - p.5.
