Arnold Hague was born in 1840 in Boston. He was a descendant of David Nimham, an Indian guide to Washington and his troops while in the forest of Westchester, New York. Hague’s eager mind and superior opportunities in his education at the Sheffield Scientific School at Yale, as well as in Heidelburg, prepared him well for his later role as chronicler of the very active landscape of Yellowstone National Park. The 24 detailed geological and topographical maps in this atlas provide a marvelous overview of one of the most exciting geographical areas of the United States.
