"Betsy Watry tells the tales of a dozen women, some of whom had short-lived adventures in Yellowstone National Park, but most of whom spent decades as rangers, scientists, interpreters, and entrepreneurs, shaping the Park's physical and cultural landscape. This is a wonderful 'hidden' history, full of surprising stories, grounded in intensive research and written with charm." --Dr. Mary Murphy, historian and author of Hope in Hard Times "For so long, Yellowstone National Park has needed a book about the women who stood and today stand tall in its history. At long last, Elizabeth Watry has produced it. Women across the nation should celebrate this book for its noteworthy contribution to women's history, as we professional historians do." Lee Whittlesey, Park Historian, National Park Service, --Yellowstone National Park "To read about Yellowstone National Park too often means viewing it through the eyes and exploits of men. By sharing the experiences and contributions of women who visited, lived, and worked in Yellowstone, Elizabeth Watry places women front and center in the Park's wondrous history. Women in Wonderland is sure to become a treasured resource." --Diane Smith, author of Letters from Yellowstone.
