Stars Over Montana

A Centennial Celebration Of The Men Who Shaped Glacier National Park

Book Description

Glacier National Park was established on May 11, 1910, to preserve and protect the region's natural and cultural resources for future generations. Along with its sister park, Waterton Lakes National Park, in Alberta, Canada, Glacier National Park is recognized as a World Heritage Site (1995) and a Biosphere Reserve (1976). It was established as the world's first International Peace Park in 1932.

Stars over Montana is a reissue of the classic history of Glacier National Park through biographies of its key founders and early explorers. The stories of exploration and discovery live again through Warren L. Hanna's outstanding research. The writing is delightful and accompanied by 15 black-and-white archival photographs.


Warren Hanna studied the history and ecology of Glacier National Park for many years and published several books on the park in the 1970s and 1980s. He died in September, 1987, and the manuscript for this book was a bequest to the Glacier Natural History Association.
