This book is a wonderful collection of images and stories that tell of the early years of Glacier National Park, from the park's creation in 1910 to the post-war boom in automobile travel. The striking black and white photographs show many of the people and places that helped make Glacier the "Crown of the Continent". The rare images and informative text were compiled by Michael J. Ober, a Montana historian and longtime seasonal ranger at Glacier.
