Lives, Legends and Legacies of Yellowstone National Park. Twelve descriptions of some exceptional women who made their mark on Yellowstone National Park.
Women in Wonderland describes twelve exceptional women who made their mark on Yellowstone National Park. The women rangers include Marguerite “Peg” Arnold, and intrepid adventurer who drove a motorcycle to Yellowstone from Philadelphia in 1924 and was the first woman to become a permanent ranger in the National Park Service. Also featured is Dr. Mary Meagher, an expert on Yellowstone’s bison who blazed a trail for women scientists. Among the early pioneers in the tourist trade were Anna Trischman Pryor and Belle Trischman with their “Devil’s Kitchenette” and Ida “Mom” Eagle of the iconic Eagle’s store. All the women had plenty of grit, independence, ambition, and curiosity as they overcame many obstacles to live and work in the world’s first national park.
