Range of Glaciers - The Exploration and Survey of the Northern Cascade Range

This item is currently sold out or unavailable online.

This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

The first comprehensive account of the 19th-century exploration and survey of the northern Cascade Range.

  • Author: Fred Beckey
  • Hardcover; 527 pages; illustrations, historical photos, maps
  • Oregon Historical Society Press; copyright 2003

Beckey presents a wide range of materials from dozens of archives across the U.S. and beyond: voyagers' logs, trappers' yarns, agency and government documents, official surveys, tall tales, climbers' journals and sober histories.
The story is of multiple overlays of discovery and conquest: European and American explorers and sea captains, fur-traders, rail-road builders, surveyors of international boundaries, settlers, gold prospectors, mountaineers, timber barons, tourists and finally the Forest Service and National Park administrations.
Two of the narratives are recounted in detail: the story of the survey of the 49th parallel, with its clear contrasts between the British and American approaches, and the account of early conquests of the major peaks, told with intimate relish by a fellow climber.

Made in USA.
