We have a beloved copy of this book in our "library" room here at home, and it was a joy to give friends the gift of a "real book" copy after their first trip to Glacier this year. Now the friends can sit by their wood stove in the Midwest on long winter evenings and plan another visit to Big Sky country!

This book contains some of the most beautiful pictures of the northern Rocky Mountains that I have seen. The author becomes your own personal guide as he takes you on a virtual tour of some of the most breathtaking scenes of the area. In the writing he shares the different facets of the landscape, animals, and character of each area. With its exquisite photography, Crown of the Continent is a highly recommended nature book and a real pleasure just to sit down and browse through.

This book literally brings alive the great natural resources of the Crown of the Continent. Author Ralph Waldt brings his passionate love of and commitment to the preservation and perpetuation of this unique and wonderful area. When you read his book, the experiences come alive and you can literally feel that you are by Ralph's side, "tramping" the wild places, seeing the environment with a richness born of personal involvement, a touching and tasting of the natural beauty and diversity of the Crown. If you have any interest level in being more a part of nature, this will help you realize your ambition, and propel you to new heights of engagement with the earth.

Without a doubt, the finest piece of nature captured not only in stunning photographs (many by Ralph himself) however the text is a must read to capture the true escense of Ralph and his skills and talents as a naturalist.

Reading this book feels like your are walking right next to Ralph as he treks the widerness of Montana describing the surroundings through his eyes and knowledge that he possesses. No stone, plant, feather, or animal is left unturned. Well written! Fantastic reading!

I live in Montana. Ralph Waldt expressed what it's like to live here and walk those trails and see the animals much better than I ever could. Oh, and his photos are just awesome.
