REVIEW Letters from Yellowstone

Letters from YellowstoneOnce the scientists overcome the shock of having a woman on their team they forge ahead on a summer of adventure forming an enlightening web of relationships as they move from Mammoth Hot Springs to a camp high in the backcountry But as they make their way collecting amid Yell. I really enjoyed this story set in 1898 of a group of scientists who go to Yellowstone to collect flora and fauna specimens and information to be cataloged for science However AE Bartram who is accepted as a participant in this expedition turns out to be a woman Um uh well no one said uh well what should we do um wellAnyway after they get over Alexandria being a woman she turns out to be a very diligent and conscientious member of the team And then the author goes on with the story of different obstacles they must all overcome events that happen and the conclusion which has a dramatic climax and a pretty nice endingHowever the whole story is told only through correspondence from the members of the team to their employers and family members This makes the read a little interestingI liked that it was kind of light and fun but it did tell uite a bit about Yellowstone the scenery and the items that they collected It felt beautiful but still held my attention very well
