Abstract: An 11 page, historical overview of Yellowstone National Park. The writer discusses tribes that once inhabited the area, how public interest grew as the result of a 19th century mining expedition, and how preservation of the park has evidenced our commitment to nature. A section also covers the large-scale fires of 1988 which ripped through Yellowstone and left widespread damage. The 'let-burn' policy of allowing forest fires to continue burning naturally is explained. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
