Yellowstone Nights, by Herbert Quick
RETURN TO YELLOWSTONE BOOKS MAIN PAGE
Yellowstone Nights by Herbert Quick (Grosset & Dunlap, New York, 1911). In the early 1900s,
tourists traveled the park in "coaching parties" of several people, often strangers, who stayed
together throughout their tour.
Yellowstone Nights was written and takes place at that time,
telling the story of a very diverse group of tourists that decides to take turns telling stories each
night before the campfire. It is simple, innocent reading from another era, and might not be for
everyone, but this fictional work provides a glimpse of Yellowstone travel in the early 1900s.
