This is one of the West's most fantastic dramas, high adventure in every sense of the word. Lost in the Yellowstone contains Truman Everts's original high-adventure chronicle of hardship and survival, newly augmented with biographical and background information.

The narrators voice was a great cast. It felt as if Mr. Everts was telling me his story himself. If I ever make it to Yellowstone I will remember be more prepared that Mr. Everts was.
Having experience in cold weather climates, one of the amazing feats of survival in this story is how Truman Everts survived without the proper clothing. Today we are kept warm and healthy with all the technology of a manufactured environment. To be hungry for so long while having to think about making decisions for your own survival is very well described in this book. It is also amazing how he got lost in the first place, his horse wandered off, then he could not find the people he was with. Later on after he's discovered, and he recovers, we find he's somewhat of a disagreeable person. You have to wonder if his getting lost was not by accident from the others that he was with. If you like the outdoors, if you have ever been to Yellowstone and the surrounding country you will like reading this book.
Story is great. A well-told narrative of an extraordinary event. Rated it it 2 stars because the narrator's overdramatized reading (as if to a small child) was so distracting that I almost gave up.
