Montana House welcomes local author Blake Passmore who will give a presentation about the history and stories behind places found in the St. Mary Valley of Glacier National Park. His talk will begin at 4:00 pm in the Kintla Camp event room at Montana House in Apgar Village.
Blake will focus on the history, ‘place names’, and stories behind locations in the St. Mary Valley. He will draw from his previously published books that are full of his photography and rich history of Glacier. These titles include: What They Called It (Vols. I and II), Up on the Roof (with fifty panoramic photos of Glacier including peak identification), and his five volume climbing guide series Climb Glacier National Park. All of these books, distributed by Montana Outdoor Guidebooks, are available at Montana House.
In keeping with Blake’s interest in Glacier’s history, he holds a Bachelor’s degree in History and also a Master’s of Education. He truly enjoys learning and sharing his knowledge of Glacier and encourages all to explore Glacier, learn the history and “find your adventure!”.
Blake’s presentation begins at 4:00 pm with time for questions, book signing, and reception to follow. This event is free and open to the public. RSVP to reserve a seat: phone: 406 888-5393 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
