"The power is out, the phones are out, the water is out, except for the lake which is in--a living creature from the Lucerne and St. Moritz rooms past the lake level rooms, down stagger alley into the laundry room." From "High Water in 1964," (when Many Glacier Hotel was flooded), A View Inside Glacier National Park: 100 Years 100 Stories.
"Jock’s dear old daddy always said, 'Jock, take my word for it. Sloppy people are all going to hell.' He also said, 'If a man smells like a whore house, he’s going to hell.' Smith had two strikes against him today and it wasn’t even noon yet." From Jock Stewart and the Missing Sea of Fire
"'Here, we have something more,'" said Gem. "'Atoms working together to form a dragon masquerading as a mountain.'" -- The Sun Singer
"On a quiet day, however, those walking alongside the relatively recent Lake Sherburne reservoir may hear the voice of grandfather rock whispering a secret: within the scope of geologic time, all rivers are new, and the men and women who follow them are as ephemeral as monarch butterflies on a summer afternoon." From "Bears, Where They Fought" (about Glacier Park's Swiftcurrent Valley) in Nature's Gifts (a 2010 Earth Day anthology)
"Nature's Gifts," "Jock Stewart and the Missing Sea of Fire," and "The Sun Singer" are (or will be) available as trade paperbacks at book stores and online resellers, as Kindle books at Amazon, and as e-books in multiple formats from Smashwords and OmniLit. Purchases of "Nature's Gifts" benefit The Nature Conservancy, purchases of "The Sun Singer" benefit the Glacier National Park Centennial Committee. The National Park Service book "A View Inside Glacier National Park: 100 Years 100 Stories" was produced as a 2010 Centennial book and, as such, benefits the Glacier National Park as well.
