Publisher's Summary

Adventures in the wilderness can be dramatic and deadly. Glacier National Park's death records date back to January 1913, when a man froze to death while snowshoeing between Cut Bank and St. Mary. 

All told, 260 people have died or are presumed to have died in the park during the first hundred years of its existence. One man fell into a crevasse on East Gunsight Peak while skiing its steep north face, and another died while moonlight biking on the Sun Road. A man left his wife and five children at the Apgar picnic area and disappeared on Lake McDonald. His boat was found halfway up the west shore wedged between rocks with the propeller stuck in gravel. 

Collected here are some of the most gripping accounts in park history of these unfortunate events caused by natural forces or human folly.

Great info for this Solo hiker!

I will be hiking in GNP soon. This book helped me understand where unexpected danger may lurk.
I appreciate the information and look forward to a safer adventure than I originally planned.

Death in Glacier Park

This book was a fascinating account of deaths and other strange mishaps in Glacier National Park. Statistically, it has fewer deaths than many other National parks, but that does not account for the many dangerous situation that can arise. Even individuals with experience are not immune and can run into trouble. This book is a cautionary tale of the many who did not make it out alive. Life saving tips are provided as well as how to enjoy the park safely. A thrilling adventure l found hard to put down. The audio version perfectly accompanies the book, with excellent narration.

Great book, terrible narration

I couldn’t listen to the narration. The roller coaster of her sentences was killing me. So I bought a paperback and read that.
