For centuries, the spectacular landscapes now protected in Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park have amazed and inspired us. Historian-naturalist Paul Schullery and artist-illustrator Marsha Karle bring us a new and richly textured portrait of this magnificent region and reveal why Waterton-Glacier is a world treasure. Through Schullery's text and Karle's watercolors and drawings, we crisscross the roads and trails of this magnificent wilderness. We learn its deep geological history and encounter its wild residents. And we discover its ever-increasing value as a barometer of planetary health in today's rapidly changing world. Schullery, who has been described as the foremost citizen of the American national parks, and Karle, whose art is informed by a National Park Service career in some of North America's most beautiful landscapes, combine their talents to create a memorable tale of the beauty, power, and peril of this high, wild country.

"Glacier National Park does something to you. It makes moments you never forget. It's a place where wild hasn't lost its meaning and the majestic landscape stirs the soul. Sitting on the United States/Canadian border in western Montana, Glacier National Park, the Crown of the Continent, covers more than one million acres of wildness and scenic grandeur and includes two Rocky Mountain sub-ranges, one hundred thirty lakes, hundreds of animal species, and more than a thousand plant species. Glacier is famous for its unique geology and geography. From its heights, streams begin and flow to the Pacific Ocean, Hudson's Bay, and even the Gulf of Mexico. And the park still has glaciers, many visible from the park's roads. This exceptional book, chockfull of history, culture, geology, and astonishing photography, is your perfect takeaway from the park. No matter why you came to Glacier--the seven hundred miles of spectacular hiking trails, the incredible bicycling on Going-to-the-Sun Road, the wildlife and floral splendor, or the angler's dream of lakes and streams--you will bring home memories to last a lifetime. Crack this book open whenever you want to go back, and spend some time with the three Gs: Grizzlies, Goats, and Glaciers!"--
