Overview

Glacier From the Inside Out is a collection of stories first published in The Inside Trail, the journal of the Glacier Park Foundation. Its members are all friends of Glacier National Park, in Montana's Rocky Mountains. These are first-person accounts covering a century of park history as told by those who know glorious Glacier best, the insiders. They tell of coming-of-age experiences in a mountain paradise, of characters past and present, and of lessons learned to last a lifetime. For decades young people have eagerly sought summer jobs in Glacier, where they can explore new heights, be paid to serve the multitude of visitors and, in so doing, gain priceless experience. Some of these employees left after just one season, but many returned to work for successive summers. Even after decades, none forgot the spectacular location or the special people they encountered, often describing it as "the best job I ever had."
