    PEOPLE BEFORE THE PARK has been enlightening as well as informative. I honor the specific place of Glacier as an alive and ever giving place and I grieve the loss of it's historical use and sacred tie to the native culture. More than ever, due to reading this book, I feel connected and in reverence to the native life and mythology, now and then. I was captivated with the details of daily/seasonal activities in balance with nature and each other. The harmony and hardship were one as their life was inescapably tied to mother nature and the honoring of the relationship. Reading one chapter at a time at bedtime, I felt in touch with the native rythmns and connection to earth and felt soothed as I fell asleep.PEOPLE BEFORE THE PARK is at once a well researched anthropological account and a window into the essence of life by the Kootenai and Blackfoot groups in Glacier before it became a national shrine for the United States of America. The book is respectfully co- authored and sanctioned by individual native peoples and the Kootenai and Blackfeet Nation's official groups. I highly reccommend this book in mind and heart.

    Sally Thompson moves the reader into the rhythm of the seasons in two cultures that live in sync with the land. That she is able to do so effectively is, in my mind, because she made this a collaborative venture. She lets the chosen representative of the two tribes, Kootenai and Blackfeet, tell their historical stories of lifestyles, foods, travel routes, hunting, ceremonies, and stories. Beyond the wealth of specific information about the land that became Glacier Park, I found reading this book was like breathing in and out the rhythm of the daily life of another culture. And in that respect, it is a shared treasure. As one who hiked Glacier Park for years, this fine book sets me on the ground in a different way. For those who love the 'Crown of the Continent' it is a MUST read.

    I was fascinated with the book and its structure. The beginning and conclusions were well done and gave everything necessary to be able to digest the content of the sections written by the Kootneai and Blackfeet nations. I was pleased to be able to witness what these cultures presented. Both were very different, but the underlying nature was exactly what I have been longing to learn. This is a book I will re-read.
