I crossed Glacier National Park for the first time in 1962. Since then, I have seen it throughout the approximately four month season when snow does not block the Going-to-the-Sun. Each trip I see different aspects of Glacier and become more fascinated with its natural history. I enjoy noticing the changes that have occurred. Even the melting glaciers and increasing wildfire damage brought on by global warming reveal new and interesting aspects.
Always there is The Road. Indeed, its very existence is an amazing thing. The story of its construction is fascinating. This little book by C.W. Guthrie tells the story in words and pictures. She does it succinctly and thoroughly. She sets the historical background and follows the construction throughout the highway's 50 mile length. Its birth dates from 1911 to 1933 and it continues to change year by year. The initial sections were built with the muscles of humans, horses, and mules.Read more ›
From a retired highway engineer.
I bought this for my mom. We went on a family vacation here earlier this year and then she went in for major surgery and I put together a basket of 'goodies' for her and put this in. She loved reading about it the history and seeing the photos of where we'd just been.
