MOTORCYCLE CHUMS IN YELLOWSTONE PARK, or,
Lending a Helping Hand,
by Andrew Carey Lincoln
RETURN TO YELLOWSTONE BOOKS MAIN PAGE

Motorcycle Chums in Yellowstone Park is one of a series of books about four young men who have
their bikes shipped near the park and enter with a letter from the commanding officer  deputizing them
and allowing them to carry arms and enter as game wardens.  Their adventure gets more complicated
when they take photo of a poacher, are discovered, and pursued by the poacher.  While
Motorcycle
Chums in Yellowstone Park
is seriously dated and flawed by its glorification of man's control over
"good" and "bad" animals, it is a stark reflection of the norms and values that were prevalent at that
time, even among those in charge of the park. We may lose sight of that in our era.  The storyline of
the poacher and subsequent pursuit is interesting and adventurous, and the concept of going through
Yellowstone in the early days of the park as well as of the early days of motorcycles is a unique
concept for this narrative.
