Summary
  • "An ideal sanctuary and a dream come true-that's what Margaret Lane feels as she takes in God's gorgeous handiwork in Mount Rainer National Park. It's 1927 and the National Park Service is in its youth when Margie, an avid naturalist, lands a coveted position alongside the park rangers living and working in the unrivaled splendor of Mount Rainier's long shadow. But Chief Ranger Ford Brayden knows too well how awe-inspiring nature can quickly turn deadly. Ford is still haunted by his father's death on the mountain, and the ranger takes his work managing the park and its growing crowd of visitors seriously. The job of watching over an idealistic Senator's daughter with few practical survival skills seems a waste of resources. When Margie's former fiance sets his mind on developing the Paradise Inn and its surroundings into a tourist playground, the plans might put more than the park's pristine beauty in danger. What will Margie and Ford sacrifice to preserve the splendor and simplicity of the wilderness they both love? Karen Barnett's Vintage National Parks novels bring to vivid life President Theodore Roosevelt's vision for protected lands, when he wrote, "There can be nothing in the world more beautiful than the Yosemite, the groves of the giant sequoias and redwoods, the Canyon of the Colorado, the Canyon of the Yellowstone, the Three Tetons; and our people should see to it that they are preserved for their children and their children's children forever, with their majestic beauty all unmarred.""--
  • "A historical romance about a determined young naturalist resolved to work in the dazzling-but-untamed Mount Rainier National Park in 1927"--
