Synopsis: Shows and describes a dozen historic park lodges, including Oregon's Timberline Lodge in Mount Hood National Forest, and El Tovar overlooking the Grand Canyon

From the Author: Great Lodges of the West began as a simple weekend trip to Oregon's "new" Crater Lake Lodge. It ended with this volume covering twelve of the best examples of the West's "wilderness" architecture. Eight lodges are in National Parks, one in a National Monument, one in a National Forest, one on ceded Indian reservation land, and one across the U.S. border in Parks Canada -- they are all national treasures.

The lodges were selected for their historic and architectural significance with the guidance of National Park Service (NPS) historical architects. As my research and travel evolved, two things stood out. First, that the National Parks and the National Park Service happened at all seems miraculous, and second, that even under the worst of circumstances, architects, building and railroad crews, masons and carpenters, landscape designers, businessmen and local boosters never gave up. Structures collapsed during winter storms, roads turned into bogs as wagons loaded with supplies sank into the mud; wind blew buildings out of plumb; financing vanished and the desolate locations made every ordinary phase of construction an obstacle.

Yet, when completed, the lodges were beyond shelters; they were monuments to the wilds of the West and the perseverance of the men and women who created them. Each lodge holds stories nailed in every board foot, dreams secured in stone and mortar and memories found in hand- carved details.

The architecture and engineering of each lodge featured in Great Lodges of the West is spectacular. Yet, it is the detail -- the forged ironwork, notched and joined massive timbers, stonework and handmade furniture-- that makes these lodges part of our history. Some suffer from the ravages of winter climates and may be a bit threadbare, but the grandeur of each building overshadows the tracks of time.
