A History of Concession Development in Yellowstone National Park, 1872-1966

While millions of people visit Yellowstone National Park each year, very few of them will actually pay detailed attention to the various concessions offered around the area, unless of course they are unable to purchase various sundries or crucial items. In this wholly engaging 153-page work, author Mary Shivers Culpin (writing for the National Park Service's Yellowstone Center for Resources), takes readers on a trip through the many phases of concession provisioning and development within Yellowstone from 1872 to 1966. As she notes in the introduction to the work, "The main to develop a historic context in which to evaluate the significant resources associated with concession development in the park." In twelve well-honed chapters, Culpin explores the competitive concession period that characterized the early 20th century in the park to the problematic years during World War II.
