Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Glacier National Park is a majestic million acres of towering mountains, ancient glaciers, and amazing biodiversity. Located astride both the Continental Divide and Hudson Bay Divide, Glacier contains Triple Divide Peak, the only point in North America from which the waters drain into three oceans. The land that George Bird Grinnell called the "Crown of the Continent" and that John Muir described as "the best care-killing scenery on the continent" has been

delighting visitors since well before it was set aside as a park in 1910. Through the years, countless people have come to Glacier to hike its nearly thousand miles of trails, marvel at its unrivalled scenery, and drive the Going-to-the-Sun Road, America's most spectacular alpine highway. Glacier is also home to remote mountain chalets and magnificent grand lodges. While most national parks have a singular signature lodge, Glacier has three.

Book News Annotation:

The author not only visits Glacier National Park annually, but has a personal perspective on it as he grew up in the park's Montana headquarters where his father worked in the days when tourists were invited to feed the bears. With archival photos, maps, and ads for "America's Vacation Paradise," Yenne traces the park's history and showcases its features. Appendices include lists of the park's major peaks, glaciers, waterfalls, and fires, and the park song. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
