In my earlier review on www.shvoong.com of C. W. Guthrie's "Glacier National Park: Legends and Lore Along the Going-to-the-Sun Road," I explained my bias as a person who had his Going-to-the-Sun Road design for the Montana State Commemorative quarter coin rejected in favor of a dead buffalo skull. Clearly I feel that Glacier National Park's Going-to-the-Sun Road is a very special place and that its story is eminently worthy to tell. Missoula, Montana, resident C. W. Guthrie does it here superbly, with clear incisive prose and copious illustrations: maps, photographs (both historic black-and-whites from rarely accessed archives and current scenic panoramic photos of the magnificent scenes available to the visiting tourist's eyes). It's hard now to appreciate the difficulties of topography, weather and politics that so hindered the construction of the road over the Continental Divide at Logan Pass's 6,000+ summit so that the project took more than a decade (1921-1932) to complete. But, in her eight chapters here ("Going-to-the-Sun Road: A Marvel Traversing an Even Greater Marvel; Over the River and Through the Woods; Lying Lightly on the Land; The Impossible Takes a Little Longer; Across the Great Divide; More Than a Passing Moment: The Dedication of the Going-to-the-Sun Road; Opening the Road: A Yearly Challenge; and A Grand Old Road"), Guthrie clearly tells the fascinating story of the road. It's an epic tale in itself, filled with determination, idealism, and a desire to do the impossible. This 72-pp paperback is a "coffee table book" par excellence, complete with bibliography and index. A wonder.
