Lord Dunraven Expedition, 1874.

Lord Dunraven was a wealthy nobleman from Great Britain who led a most unusual and colorful life. Dunraven was inspired as a young boy by his uncle's tales of Sir George Gore's slaughter of wildlife on the American prairies and, at the age of 33, embarked on a sporting adventured to Yellowstone National Park. His account of the expedition is delightful reading and well illustrated but contains very little natural history information.
