About this book

Glacier National Park is one of the most magnificent of North America's national parks. It encompasses the dramatic landscapes where the vast waters of the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Hudson Bay converge. It is a place where the flora and fauna of these three basins come together - making it one of the richest and most diverse natural places in the world. Glacier begins by explaining the evolution of the park's geology from the erosion of mountains many millions of years ago to the glaciers that give the park its name and distinctive landscape. It then goes on to explore the natural history of the region's plants and animals - including grizzly bears, mountain lions, wolves, and moose. The result is a fascinating and intimate portrait of one of the world's last truly wild places.
