Detailed Product Description
Boston, 1938, 1st edition. 166 pp, 24 b/w photos. Small Ex Lib red cloth hardcover with no dust jacket. Book has the usual library wear and marks. Very Good.

An account of the author's trips in the Glacier National Park region, including the trip with his uncle, Lyman Beecher Sperry in 1894.

From U.S. Geological Survey Professional Paper 1180 (Sperry Glacier): "Sperry Glacier was named in honor of Lyman Beecher Sperry, M.D., of Oberlin College, Oberlin, Ohio. Sperry camped with several others in the Avalanche Basin in 1894, and deduced from the milky nature of the water in Avalanche Lake that it came from a glacier. He, with several members of the party, succeeded in scaling the cliffs at the head of Avalanche Basin and reached a vantage point on the side of the Little Matterhorn, a small isolated peak in the saddle between Edwards Mountain and Mount Brown (fig. 1), from which the glacier was visible. Albert L. Sperry, a nephew of Dr. Sperry's, was a member of the party in 1894...."
