Tenting To-night

Mary Roberts Rinehart

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.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .eturn an hour later with a six-inch trout, a bandaged hand, a hundred and eighty mosquito bites, no leaders, and no smile.

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

Wow, these books so inspired me as a kid that Between Rinehart and my parents, I have a love of wilderness and camping. The Glacier trip and North Cascades was a different wilderness than when I have visited, as in REALLY SCARY. Rinehart was a hero to me. I camp and wish I would have also picked up

Tenting Tonight by Mary Roberts Rinehart
Wasn't sure if this was a cookbook or about camping. It's about sport and adventure in Glacier Park and the Cascade Mountains.
Illustrations are indexed at the front of the book along with table of contents.

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

I finished reading this sitting by a campfire in a comfortable reclining chair before going to bed in our travel trailer. What would Mrs. Rinehart have thought of our calling this "camping"? Her descriptions of the horseback caravan she and her family took through what is now Glacier National Park a

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.

Mary Robers Rinehart was one of the great American mystery writers of the twentieth century. In this book, she tells of her travels in what is now Glacier National Park in 1916. She and her family, along with many guides and naturalists, take off on horseback to cross from Montana into the Cascades

I highly recommend this short book to anyone who 1) loves camping 2) loves national parks or 3) has a fondness for Glacier National Park. Written 100+ years ago by woman who had been a war correspondent and a mystery novel writer, it is written with both awe of an unexplored area and wonderful humor

Lacking important detail. Interesting to read the perspective of the era.

Glacier National Park was created in 1910. In 1916 Mary Roberts Rinehart wrote a book about her trip through the eastern portion of the park with Howard Eaton. I am going to read that book next. Out of order, I know, but I had not realized until the first chapter of Tenting Tonight that she had been

Not her usual fanfare. Travelogue of the Pacific Northwest with lots of comic relief. It is about an extended "vacation" trip through the Glacier National Park before the area was developed for tourism. Trip was largely done on horseback and on trails that were at times poorly marked or unmarked. It
