Notes "Glacier is a place of paradox, at once serene and violent, breathtakingly beautiful and somber, even sometimes almost ominous. Vibrant life thrives within the apparent calm of the scenery, and people from all walks of life come to the park and interact with each other, encountering the wilderness, learning its ways, and telling stories about their experiences. In this collection, I have put together a variety of those stories written between 1889 and 2016, along with Native American oral narratives of gods, animals, and men that date back much further. My intention has been to portray the park in all its diversity, richness, and beauty. I hope this collection does it justice."--Last paragraph of introduction
