Detailed Product Description
New York, 1895, 1st edition. 259 pp, b/w photos and illustrations, folding map. Original green cloth hardcover with minor damp stain to front. Fine condition.

The Carlin Party sought bliss in nature; instead they found a blizzard which left them stranded without food or provisions. Theirs is an Idaho horror story, ending in rescue and relief for only a portion of the party. The author published this book using a pseudonym due to the controversy surrounding the discovery of this lost hunting party for leaving their cook, George Colegate, behind unable to walk and thinking he was close to death. The cook's body was located years later six miles from where he had been left to die.
