This was an exciting time of change in Wyoming: Wyoming Territory was admitted into the Union; the end of the trappers' rendezvous precipitated a decline in the fur trade and mountain men; Wyoming's Civil War took place in Johnson County; with Yellowstone recently declared a national park, Cody became a thriving communit as its eastern entrance, and work began on the Shoshone Dam, later known as the Buffalo Bill Dam and Reservoir. Hundred of thousands of bison no longer dotted the Wyoming landscape and the disappearance was soon followed by the extinction of wolves and severly diminished herds of wild mustangs.
Bertha and Charlie Daye experienced it all, and more . . . from guiding eastern guests into remote mountain paradises, rounding up wild horses, and riding in thrilling overland horse races, to adopting children who traveled west on one of the famous Orphan Trains.
