Following the return of the Lewis & Clark expedition, no member of the party lived so full a life of discovery and dramatic adventure as John Colter. The high point, of couse, was his discovery of that region of geysers, mud pots, and waterfalls known today as Yellowstone National Park. This explains why three authors, Stallo Vinton, Ethel Hueston, and Burton Harris, have written full-length biographies about Colter. Of the three biographies Vinton's is the earliest and most difficult to find. Originally published in 1926 by Edward Eberstadt, this early biography covers the life of Colter as hunter, trapper, Indian fighter, pathfinder and member of the Lewis & Clark Expedition. Howes V114.
