Book Overview: 

This is the second of two travelogues published by Mary Roberts Rinehart. Both deal with Glacier National Park, and this book also deals with the Cascade Mountains (The other is entitled Through Glacier Park). Rinehart wrote hundreds of short stories, poems, travelogues and articles, though she is most famous for her mystery stories. The region that became Glacier National Park was first inhabited by Native Americans and upon the arrival of European explorers, was dominated by the Blackfeet in the east and the Flathead in the western regions.

So we fished little that first evening, and, on the discovery that candles had been left out of the cook's outfit, we retired early to our bough beds, which were, as it happened that night, of class A.

There was a deer-lick on our camp-ground there at Bridge Creek, and during the night deer came down and strayed through the camp. One of the guides saw a black bear also. We saw nothing. Some day I shall write an article called: "Wild Animals I Have Missed."[29]

We had made fourteen miles the first day, with a late start. It was not bad, but the next day we determined to do better. At five o'clock we were up, and at five-thirty tents were down and breakfast under way. We had had a visitor the night before—that curious anomaly, a young hermit. He had been a very well-known pugilist in the light-weight class and, his heal. . . Read More

Entertaining listening

Adventurous, at times hilarious, she writes about discovering wild places and harrowing experience with wit and candor.

A lovely story though I wish it were more in detail :)

Great read

Fun to see the PNW through the eyes of the past. How I would have loved to see the unspoiled land and fished in pristine waters. Now the bull trout is almost fished to extinction. Sad. I enjoyed this very much.
