Featured in this lot is this illustrated copy of "Through Glacier Park" by Mary Roberts Rinehart. This book is fully titled "Through Glacier Park: Seeing American First with Howard Eaton” and was published by Houghton Mifflin Company, The Riverside Press Cambridge 1916. There is a full page portrait of the author next to the title page and beautiful illustrations throughout the book. Mary Roberts Rinehart was an already famous mystery writer before writing this travelogue. In this book, she introduces readers to recently minted national park and to the scenic wonders of Montana and to the adventures to be found there. Howard Eaton, an intrepid guide who had become known for his Yellowstone experience, had convinced Rinehart to make the trek to the West. Traveling three hundred miles on horseback with a group of more than forty assorted tourists of all shapes and sizes, she took in her fellow travelers, the scenery, and the travel itself with all the style and aplomb and humor of the talented fiction writer and journalist she was—and her words remain fresh and entertaining to this day. The condition of this book is good, with slight wear of the cover and the spine of the book and browning to the pages consistent with the age of the book. Cellophane dust cover. The measurements of this book are 7 5/8" x 5 3/8".
