Editorial Reviews

Review

"Frank H. Goodyear III has done historians and the public at large an enormous favor by producing A President in Yellowstone, which reveals the long-unavailable photographs by Frank Jay Haynes of his 1883 trip through Yellowstone with President Chester A. Arthur. In addition, Goodyear places the trip in fascinating context, adding many details to existing accounts. This book is an important contribution to western Americana.”— Lee H. Whittlesey, Historian, National Park Service, Yellowstone Center for Resources



"A commemorative travel album here becomes the focus of a fascinating and wide-ranging argument about presidential politics and the invention of Yellowstone National Park. As Frank Goodyear unpacks the photographs that document President Chester A. Arthur’s western trip of 1883, he explores the relationship between the chief executive and the press, and the tensions between conservationists and developers. His characters include captains of industry and defeated Indian leaders, eastern tourists and ambitious government bureaucrats, who together helped shape the emergence of the modern West. This is a lovely piece of microhistory, a small focused story that speaks to much larger political and cultural concerns.”—Martha A. Sandweiss, Professor of History, Princeton University, and author of Print the Legend: Photography and the American West

This is a great book. I like everything about Yellowstone, but was not aware of this president visiting the park.
