AbstractAlthough Ferdinand Vandeveer Hayden submitted the voluminous "Fifth Report" detailing the exploration of Yellowstone's high country in 1871, important parts of this expedition's story were omitted. Later accounts of the expedition by Hayden and by the photographer William Henry Jackson, though prepared from their field notes, contained mistakes caused by faulty memories. Unfortunately, the original field notes of both men have been lost. In Yellowstone and the Great West, Marlene Merrill presents the edited and annotated diaries of other expedition members, the geologist George Nelson Allen and the mineralogist Albert C. Peale.
