Summary "The flow of history is created, championed, and sustained by giants. This is certainly the case of Glacier National Park, which was forged by mountains and ice, discovered and protected by early humans, brought into being as America's 10th national park, and thereafter maintained and enhanced by others throughout the 20th century, even to the present day"--Provided by publisher.
