Glacier National Park: A Natural History Guide (Natural History Guides)
- Publish Date: 1995-06-19
- Binding: Paperback
- Author: David Rockwell
Consisting of more than a million acres straddling the Continental Divide, Glacier is one of the largest, wildest, and most spectacular of our national parks. Ranging from 3,000 to 10,000 feet in elevation, with moist climates to the west and dry ones to the east, Glacier is rich in topographical and biological diversity, and although it attracts over 2 million visitors a year, it is still largely wilderness. Like the first two guides in this new series, Grand Canyon and Great Smokies, this book includes a fascinating narrative that captures the park's unique personality, natural history, and human history, as well as a wealth of reference material on plants and animals, geology, climate, and visitor information. The book is illustrated with photographs, drawings, and maps.
