DON W. DeJARNETT Cowboy Tales on the Eaton Trail in Yellowstone

DON W. DeJARNETT Cowboy Tales on the Eaton Trail in Yellowstone. Pronghorn Press, trade paperback, 248 pages, $19.95, amazon.com

Cowboy Howard Eaton began taking people into Yellowstone country in the late 1880s, after it became the first National Park. He and his brothers established the world’s first “Dude Ranch” in Medora, North Dakota, and in 1904 moved the Eaton Ranch to Wolf, Wyoming. Author Don DeJarnett spent some time as an Eaton Cowboy and here leads readers on a trip through today’s Yellowstone, following as closely as possible Howard Eaton’s trail, sharing stories about the sights along the way.
