Since 1910 when the park was established, 296 people have perished within Glacier's boundaries, and many more somehow survived close calls with death. Death & Survival in Glacier National Park recounts their true tales, as well as stories of the brave and often heroic search-and-rescue professionals who put their lives on the line so that others might live.

    • Written by local Glacier National Park experts.
    • Jam-packed with gripping stories of courage and survival against all odds.
    • Featuring the most complete chronology of all 296 deaths in Glacier National Park, including names, ages, locations, and causes.

C. W. Guthrie align= C. W. (Carol) Guthrie's love affair with Glacier began when she and her dad drove the Going-to-the-Sun Road when she was nine years old. For the past twenty-five years, following a career working for the Air Force, she has explored the park and its history and authored five books about the park, including Farcountry Press titles All Aboard! for Glacier: The Great Northern Railway and Glacier National Park, and Glacier National Park: The First 100 Years.
Ann & Dan Fagre align= Dan and Ann Fagre have been backpacking, climbing, skiing, and exploring mountains and national parks since the early 1970s. Over these decades, they've been wilderness rangers, fire lookouts, firefighters, and outdoor trip leaders in various western landscapes. For the past twenty-six years, they've made their home in West Glacier, Montana, and Glacier National Park, where they’ve worked, played, and raised their daughters who are following in their footsteps.
