Montana: Glacier Park Issue

Standard

Readers, tourists, hikers, and climbers who are fans of Glacier National Park will enjoy the Summer 2010 centennial issue of Montana: The Magazine of Western History beginning with the John Fery painting on the cover.

The issue not only contains a great overview of the park, but includes dozens of photographs and paintings in support of the text. Read it for the information, then keep it as a collector’s item.

Here’s what you’ll find inside:

“Conceiving Nature: THE CREATION OF MONTANA’S GLACIER NATIONAL PARK” by Andrew C. Harper

“Where the Prairie Ends and the Sky Begins: MAYNARD DIXON IN MONTANA” by Donald J. Hagerty

“Glacier National Park: PEOPLE, A PLAYGROUND, AND A PARK” by
Jennifer Bottomly-O’ looney and Deirdre Shaw

“The Miraculous Survival of the Art of Glacier National Park” by Hipólito Rafael Chacón

Cover Art: “The iconic mountain goat on the front cover is a detail from a painting by John Fery, one of the park’s foremost painters. Fery made it the centerpiece of his untitled collage of Glacier views (n.d., oil on canvas, 65″ x 115″) commissioned by the Great Northern Railway.”

Congratulations to the editors, writers and photographers on a wonderful commemorative issue.

  1. That’s more good publicity for the park. I keep reading that attendance is well up this year and everything like that helps.

    • The centennial has brought a lot of people to the park. Also, I think shows like Ken Burns’ PBS series on the National Parks last summer helped re-interest people in the parks in general.

  2. Great surprise to see this post on the new issue of MONTANA THE MAGAZINE OF WESTERN HISTORY! The authors, editors, and designer really worked hard on this one. If you’re trying to locate a library to read it or a store to buy it, just let me know. I can steer you to a local reading spot. Meanwhile HAPPY BIRTHDAY Glacier!

    • The authors, editors and designer are to be congratulated. The issue is all of a piece, and a fitting tribute to the park and those who have worked there. My copy of the magazine comes to me by mail like clockwork since I am a long-time member of the MHS.
