- Farcountry Press is excited to re-issue Glacier’s Historic Hotels and Chalets: View with a Room by co-authors Ray Djuff and Chris Morrison. Packed with rare historical images (32 color, 160 black-and-white) and in-depth accounts of key people and events, Glacier’s Historic Hotels and Chalets brings to life the rich histories of eleven
of the park’s grand old hotels and Swiss-style chalets. Meticulously researched, no other book covers Glacier’s hostelries with such a wealth of historical photographs and detailed stories, from the park’s first years up to the present day.
This second edition arrives just in time to celebrate Glacier Park Lodge’s June 2013 centennial, with similar anniversaries on the horizon for Lake McDonald Lodge (2014), Granite Park Chalet (2015), and Many Glacier Hotel (2015). The book is also a timely commemoration of “parkitecture” as Many Glacier Hotel completes its recent renovation. A lively and entertaining read, Glacier’s Historic Hotels and Chalets: View with a Room appeals to anyone who has ever lingered in the spacious lobbies or spent a night under the coverlets in one of Glacier’s grand old lodges.
