Book Beat – The Road to Paradise by Karen Barnett

Margie Lane arrives at the new Mount Rainier National Park in June 1927 to work for the summer, spouting poetry and book knowledge of the creatures and plants that surround her. Chief Ranger Ford Brayden is jaded. He knows too well how dangerous the mountain is, and he needs to focus on the day-to-day operations… Read more »
