The Most Gruesome Ways Tourist Have Died In Yellowstone
People die in the DUMBEST ways in Wyoming's Yellowstone National Park.
You know when you find yourself laughing at HOW a person died, even though you feel a little guilty about it because, well, THEY DIED!
If you like that sort of humor then this is the book for you.
But other stories in this book are not funny at all.
They will horrify you because it's all true.
You've been warned.
Calamities in Yellowstone from the past sixteen years, including the infamous grizzly bear attacks in the summer of 2011 as well as a fatal hot springs accident in 2000.
In these accounts, written with sensitivity as cautionary tales about what to do and what not to do in one of our wildest national parks, Whittlesey recounts deaths ranging from tragedy to folly—from being caught in a freak avalanche to the goring of a photographer who just got a little too close to a bison.
Armchair travelers and park visitors alike will be fascinated by this important book detailing the dangers awaiting in our first national park.
There is a sample of the book to listen to on YouTube.
Here is that video. It will make you CRINGE!
Yeah, most of these stories are hard to read.
Some of these people died in HORRIBLE ways.
This is what happens when people who have never experienced nature go out and visit nature for the first time.
It's not like we don't warn these people.
There are signs, literature, and videos all over the place. Even books like this one.
Can someone write a song about people who die in Yellowstone?
There is that song most of us have heard by now, Dumb Ways To Die.
I'm sure we can come up with something for Yellowstone.
