HOT OFF THE PRESS: Book links 1915, 2015 in Glacier Park

Re-created journey the subject of FVCC talk

Print Article

Flathead Valley Community College will welcome local author and Hungry Horse News Editor Chris Peterson for a community presentation Dec. 16 on Mary Roberts Rinehart’s book, “Through Glacier Park in 1915.”

Penned by Rinehart in 1915, “Through Glacier Park in 1915” was a travelogue of her 300-mile journey, led by Howard Eaton, through Glacier National Park, starting and ending in East Glacier at the train station. Rinehart traveled by horseback through the park with a party of more than 40 people, including famed artist Charlie Russell.

In 2015, 100 years after the release of the book, Peterson re-created Rinehart’s journey.

Between February and September, Peterson hiked 240 miles, many of them with his son, while confronting snowstorms, rain, hurricane-force winds, blazing heat, bear encounters and the thick smoke of wildfires.

Peterson produced a book, “Through Glacier Park 1915-2015: A Centennial Celebration of a Classic Journey,” chronicling his adventure on the trail of Rinehart.

The book was published by the Hungry Horse News.  For more information about the book, call 758-4520.

Peterson’s free presentation Dec. 16, which is hosted by the Glacier National Park Conservancy,  will feature stories from his adventures. Autographed copies of Peterson’s book will be available for purchase with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Conservancy.

The event will take place at 7 p.m. in the large community meeting room inside the Arts and Technology Building on the FVCC campus. For more information, contact Amy Dempster at 892-3250 or amy@gnpconservancy.org.
