Glacier National Park remains a unique ecosystem, one of the most unspoiled in the world, full of wonders to discover. Triple Divide Peak is the only place in the United States where water flows to three oceanswest to the Pacific Ocean, east to the Atlantic, and north to the Arctic. The Big Drift, the snowdrift that forms on Logan Pass each winter, can grow to over eighty feet high and takes road crews months to clear each spring. Join acclaimed author Donna Love as she examines the park's twenty-five remaining active glaciers, explains the formation of the park's towering mountains, vibrant valleys, and pristine lakes, and looks at living things from beargrass to grizzly bears. You'll learn about the park's human history as well, from the arrival of the first ancient peoples to the establishment of the park in 1910 to plans for the twenty-first century and beyond. Whether you're taking a real trip or an imaginary adventure, you'll definitely enjoy the journey.
