Floods And Fire

I’ll be up at the Marias Heritage Center here in Shelby again this evening (Tuesday) at 6 right after I get done having fun on the Puffman Show this afternoon. We’re currently enjoying reading, “Glacier From the Inside Out”, & the past couple of Tuesdays, we’ve been reading a section entitled “Glacier’s dragons: floods & fire”. I don’t have to tell you that there has been some real tragedy over at the park through the years. This particular section of this wonderful read features events such as: the Hhgh water in June of 1964, the great flood of 1964 at East Glacier, the fire of 1936, The great flood of 1975 at Rising Sun, the Trapper Creek Fire 2003, the evacuation of the McDonald Valley, evacuating the lodges: a general manager’s diary (2003) &the Red Eagle fire of 2006, Like the book, they are ALL 1st hand accounts from former employees who wereactually there at the time. “Glacier From the Inside Out” tells of coming-of-age experiences in a mountain paradise, of characters past & present, & of lessons learned to last a lifetime. I think I speak for all of us up at the Heritage Center when I say that this book is truly, not only a learning lesson for us, but a most enjoyable adventure as we do some real “armchair traveling”. See you tonight when I TRAVEL up to the Marias Heritage Center here in Shelby to read some more “Montana History”. By the way, when we wrap up our Glacier Park book, I plan to start on “Penny Post Cards and Prairie Flowers” by Philip J. Burgess. I met Phillip up at the recent Montana Storytellers Roundup in Cut Bank & I know we’re going to love his book. A fascinating “Montana” true story!
