The Great Divide: Travels in the Upper Yellowstone in the Summer of 1874 by the Earl of
Dunraven   Beautifully written, this travelog by one of England's more adventurous young
aristocrats is surprisingly down to earth. The Earl of Dunraven's tour of the American West
included encampment with Native Americans and crossing paths with Buffalo Bill, Texas Jack,
the Bottler Brothers, and other notables of the era. Through his writing, it is obvious Dunraven
enjoyed Yellowstone for its beauty and adventure. One of his favorite camping spots was in the
area of what is now known as Dunraven Pass.
