Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in Grand Teton National Park, is known today as a picturesque resort town where millions come every year to enjoy the awesome Teton Mountains. In the early part of this century, however, Jackson Hole was known only to a select few - who thought the name "screamingly funny." Those who made the difficult journey to reach this secluded "hole" or "basin" at the foot of the Tetons considered themselves the fortunate inhabitants of a paradisal Shangri-la. A Shangri-la it may have been, but it was a peculiarly American Shangri-la that blended East and West. Local society included high-toned countesses in love with their cowboy foremen, talented and eccentric writers from the East in love with the West, and well-educated scions of Eastern respectability who managed dude ranches for their friends.
