Fate Is A Mountain explores Glacier National Park history from the perspective of the late ranger Lloyd Parratt's sons Mark, Monty, and Smitty. The family summered in the old Sun Camp Ranger Station on Saint Mary Lake in the 1950s and 60s and their story covers the glory days of living and working in America's Crown Jewel.

These true stories include Mark's adventures as a fire guard in the Belly River country, working under legendary ranger, Joe Heimes, Monty Parratt's first hand description of his summers working out of the primitive Blister Rust Camp near Oldman Lake, and Smitty's heart-wrenching account as a ten-year-old boy mauled by a female grizzly along the Otokomi Lake Trail.
