Overview

Glacier National Park: The First 100 Years is an exquisite new book celebrating the park's 100th anniversary.

Published in partnership with the Glacier Natural History Association and an official licensed product of the park's centennial, Glacier National
Park: The First 100 Years
features more than 200 exquisite landscape and historical photographs, as well as some of the finest artwork of the region and its people, including Charles M. Russell's sun-splashed paintings of Montana scenes, Winold Reiss's extraordinary portraits of the Blackfeet, Monte Dolack's vivid Glacier views, and Mel Ruder's Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs.

C. W. Guthrie, author of four other books on Glacier National Park, turns back the clock to a time when massive glaciers covered the region, slowly scouring the deep valleys and whittling the peaks of today's park.

Visit the land before it was a park, when the Blackfeet, Kootenai, Gros Ventre, Assiniboine, Pend d'Oreille, and Bitterroot Salish tribes called the Crown of the Continent home.

Witness the collision of cultures as Guthrie chronicles the arrival of the explorers, traders, and railroad barons
Experience the astonishing changes the park has undergone since its designation in 1910. From the Great Northern Railway's Swiss-style chalets and lodges to the glorious Going-to-the-Sun Road, from the park's tragic first fatal grizzly attacks to its designation as an International Peace Park, Biosphere Reserve, and World Heritage Site, Glacier National Park has a story unlike any other.
