Cursed in New York: Stories of the Damned in the Empire State
Cursed in New York invites you to read about the misfortunes of others, and thank your lucky stars that none of these things are happening to you! These legendary tales are collected from across New York State, from the eastern reaches of Long Island to the gorges of Niagara Falls. In some cases, a curse led people to ruin and other curses actually drove people to take their own lives. With numbers and coincidental events, it's hard to argue that no malevolent force was involved. What did any of these people do to deserve their fates? They bought a property where a murder had taken place, constructed a building on the site of an ancient burial ground, purchased a gem stolen from an east Indian temple, or intruded on a spirit in a cave. Some of these people knew that their actions could bring the wrath of evil down upon them, but most made an innocent misstep. Some of these stories will be regionally well known. Others are nearly forgotten. All are cursed.

Death in Glacier National Park: Stories of Accidents and Foolhardiness in the Crown of the Continent
Adventures in the wilderness can be dramatic and deadly. Glacier National Park's death records date back to January 1913, when a man froze to death while snowshoeing between Cut Bank and St. Mary. All told, 260 people have died or are presumed to have died in the park during the first hundred years of its existence. One man fell into a crevasse on East Gunsight Peak while skiing its steep north face, and another died while moonlight biking on the Sun Road. A man left his wife and five children at the Apgar picnic area and disappeared on Lake McDonald. His boat was found halfway up the west shore wedged between rocks with the propeller stuck in gravel. Collected here are some the most gripping accounts in park history of these unfortunate events caused by natural forces or human folly.

Prior to that, the steep, narrow route to Angels Landing led to at least five fatalities. Numerous people have found that high, exposed places in Zion-such as rim trails-are bad places to be in lightning storms.

Historic Glacier National Park: The Stories Behind One of America's Great Treasures
Historic Glacier National Park captures the most interesting moments in the park's history, slices of life in northwestern Montana that provide an idea of what adventures were in store for those who chose to explore this gloriously beautiful snowy corner of the United States. There's the presence of Native Americans in nearly every aspect of the park's history, the significant leadership of the Great Northern Railway as the park gained its footing, and the people who risked life and limb in this astonishing Rocky Mountain landscape. Once Congress decided to make Glacier a national park, developers created hotels, chalets, campgrounds, residences, and the most spectacularly scenic road in the United States. Historic Glacier National Park provides just enough of this rich history to make the experience of visiting the park even better than expected.
