This book was published by its author, former Glacier National Park ranger Jerry DeSanto, in 1989. DeSanto writes, "My intention is to record personal observations together with information from the listed sources to present a complete and accurate picture of the flowering alpine plants of Glacier, Waterton and the surrounding area."   The book covers history and dispersal of alpine flora, ecology of alpines plants, distribution of alpine flora, and flower identification with color photos of flowering plants found in both Glacier and Waterton Parks.
