Through Glacier Park

Mary Roberts Rinehart

Book Overview: 

This is about a three-hundred mile trip across the Rocky Mountains on horseback with Howard Eaton. It is about fishing, and cool nights around a camp-fire, and long days on the trail. It is about a party of all sorts, from everywhere, of men and women, old and young, experienced folk and novices, who had yielded to a desire to belong to the sportsmen of the road. And it is by way of being advice also. Your true convert must always preach.

There are no "Keep-Off-the-Grass" signs in Glacier Park, no graveled paths and clipped lawns. It is the wildest part of America. If the Government had not preserved it, it would have preserved itself. No homesteader would ever have invaded its rugged magnificence or dared its winter snows. But you and I would not have seen it.

True, so far most niggardly provision has been made. The Government offices are a two-roomed wooden cabin. The national warehouse is a barn. To keep it up, to build trails and roads, to give fire protection for its fourteen hundred square miles of great forest, with many millions of dollars worth of timber, are provided thirteen rangers! Thirteen rangers, and an annual allowance less than half of what is given to Yellowstone Park,—with this difference, too, that Yellowstone Park has had . . . Read More

Great, inspiring book. Between Rinehart, Ansel Adams and my parents, I developed a lifelong love of travel and most especially nature. Camping is my friend. The adventures of Rinehart were scary and exciting and Glacier Park one of the scariest. It was wilderness for her and for me but oh so diff...more

Great little read about Glacier National Park in the early days!

Charming.

Absolutely brilliant. I don't think I've read a book that speaks more to the sense of being called by the Rockies that buried itself deep in my heart.

I purchased a copy of this at St. Mary's Lodge the other day while visiting Glacier National Park. I read most of it that night in a tent near Coram, MT. Reading of a trip through the park 100 years before was fascinating.

This part of NW Montana is awesome and reading this little book gives clear...more

Having just finished Tenting Tonight, Rinehart's 1918 book about a trip she made through Glacier National Park, I had to read this book, written a couple of years earlier about her first trip through the park in 1915. The Park was created in 1910, so these were very much the early years of wilder...more
