Summary

Clouds that cling to mountain peaks, the mossy Hoh Rain Forest, and glaciers that glitter like diamonds atop the Olympic Mountains are all found in the Pacific Northwest's Olympic National Park. Author Susan Jankowski explains how eight different American Indian tribes have links to this area and discusses elements of their culture. She vividly describes the park's unique geological features and wildlife including orcas, Steller sea lions, salmon, and the Roosevelt elk. Readers will learn about environmental threats to the park as well as a wide range of activities that they can do there.
