Belly River's Famous Joe Cosley is the true-life autobiography of one of the first park rangers of Glacier Park-a man who engaged in illegal trapping and poaching on the sly. His questionable activities eventually got him arrested and taken to trial; yet he escaped the authorities and out-raced the rangers of Glacier Park to his cache of furs, a struggle that included crossing 30 miles of icy Ahern Pass in one night, by snowshoe. Black-and-white photographs illustrate this amazing story of an extraordinary (albeit greedy) man, along with new information on his family. A most enjoyable read cover to cover, highly recommended.
