The Montana House Regional Gift Shop in Apgar Village and The Glacier National Park fund are pleased to host C. W. Guthrie on Saturday, September 12, 2009 at 2:00 pm. Carol will talk about the writing efforts that went into her latest book – Glacier National Park, The First 100 Years. She turns back the clock to times when massive glaciers covered the area we now know as Glacier National Park, to the time when several Native American tribes called the Crown of the Continent home, to the collision of cultures with the rush of settlers moving west and to the astonishing changes that have taken place in the Park since it’s inception in 1910.
Carol will speak at 2:00 pm with a book signing and reception to follow. This event is open to the public with no cost to attend, but it is recommended to call 888-5393 for reservations, as seating is limited. Her new book is available for purchase at the Montana House.
