Rangers, Trappers, and Trailblazers: Early Adventures in Montana's Bob Marshall Wilderness and Glacier National Park by John Fraley
Category: United States
This book was published 3 years ago by Farcountry Press and takes approximately 9.3 hours to read.
"Author John Fraley tells thirteen pioneer stories of the Middle, North, and South Forks of the Flathead River in and around the Bob Marshall Wilderness and Glacier National Park. In Rangers, Trappers, and Trailblazers, Fraley brings alive more than a century of history--old-timers, quirky characters, and mountain landscapes. The stories feature a love triangle and fatal shootout, tangles with grizzlies, a few unsolved mysteries, daring ranger patrols, six dead trappers, backcountry plane crashes, an unmarked mass grave, and a "war on predators" that extended across the Bob Marshall backcountry. Read along and learn the stories of Cowboy Chick Grimsley, tough Henry Thol (the ranger's ranger), Madame Queen, the Galloping Finn, and many other colorful historical characters from the Flathead River forks. The stories spring from dozens of interviews, site visits, and extensive research conducted over nearly a decade. This book honors these historical figures and preserves their uncanny stories before they fade from our collective memory."--Provided by publisher.
