Hidden Montana: Including Missoula, Helena, Bozeman &
Glacier & Yellowstone National Parks
John Gottberg
List Price $
25.95 • List Price: $11.17

No state in America suits the Hidden guides' philosophy better than Montana. Still relatively untouched by mega-resorts, tourist-packed traffic jams, and ersatz ski villages, Montana offers friendly travel facilities nestled in lost expanses of wilderness. Since 96% of all visitors drive into the state, the author carefully maps out the state's many highways and country roads while describing the adventures found along the way. Hidden Montana covers historical attractions like the battlefield where General Custer made his infamous "last stand" and describes numerous ghost towns where Old West legends haunt abandoned buildings. It then leads readers through the state's American Indian reservations with helpful advice on how to both enjoy and honor Native American culture. This guidebook shows the way to over 70 parks, reserves, and wilderness areas. Truly two guides in one, Hidden Montana serves as both a travel guide and an outdoor adventure handbook. Veteran travel writer John Gottberg Anderson recommends dozens of small inns where the proprietors combine modern comforts with outdoor activities such as wildlife viewing, fishing, and biking. Detailed reviews of Montana's best outdoor outfitters for river running, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, horseback riding, and even pack trips are included.

One of the jewels in the national park system, Glacier National Park encompasses the dramatic landscape where the vast watersheds of the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, and Hudson Bay converge. Here plants and animals unique to those three basins come together, making it one of the richest, most diverse natural places in North America. Wolves, grizzly bears, and moose wander its woods and high alpine meadows. Western redcedar, whitebark pine, and glacier lily thrive and mingle on the slopes of its glacial valleys. Author and naturalist David Rockwell explains the evolution of the park's geology from the erosion of Australian mountains more than a billion years ago to the glaciers that gave Glacier National Park its distinctive landscape. He explores the natural history of the plants and animals of the park's six distinct regions. You'll learn about the park's greatest predators, grizzly bears, mountain lions, and wolves, and about their complex relationship with their prey. The result is a fascinating and intimate portrait of one of the world's last truly wild places.
