Crater Lake National Park: A History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A half million people visit Crater Lake each year, and tens of millions throughout the world have been captivated by photographs of this deep blue jewel of Oregon's Cascade Mountains. To mark the 100th anniversary of Crater Lake National Park, Rick Harmon has written the first comprehensive history of the park and the people and events that created and shaped it.

This thorough and thoughtful history of America's seventh national park includes a fascinating overview of the geography, geology, and wildlife of Crater Lake and its surroundings. In tracing the origins of the park, which was established in 1902, Harmon offers revealing portraits of the key individuals and powerful personalities who founded, shaped, and managed Crater Lake National Park over the past one hundred years.

In addition, this book is the first to carefully consider the relationship of the area's Native American people to Crater Lake and the Mount Mazama region — traditionally regarded as a sacred place — and their role and plight as neighbors of the national park.

Rich in detail and extensively illustrated, this book will appeal to the many Crater Lake National Park visitors who want to learn more about its history and to readers with an interest in national parks, Native Americans, environmental history, and the history of Oregon.

Book News Annotation:

Coverage includes the geography, geology, and wildlife of the Crater Lake, the origins of the park, key individuals in the park's establishment and management, and the relationship of the area's Native American people to Crater Lake and the surrounding region. Illustrated primarily with b&w photos, the text also features an eight-page section of three types of color media used to promote the park prior to the era of color photography.
