GLEN ECHO PARK: A STORY OF SURVIVAL.

GlenEchoParkSurvival[Book: Richard Cook & Deborah Lange – 2000 – 15x23cm – 116 Pages – Many B&W photos]. Glen Echo and its amusement park, (Montgomery County, Maryland) has risen from the ashes so many times during its turbulent career that one loses count. The story of its survival is the story of community Davids negotiating with government and business Goliaths, the story of what can be done when a group of people believe in an idea so strongly that they put their lives on hold and pour their energies into the pursuit of their dream. Selected Chapter Points: Glen Echo Park is Named; Glen Echo Thrives; The Dentzel Carousel and Coaster Dips Arrive; Disneyland Threatens the Park’s Future; The Amusement Park Closes; Local Residents Save the Carousel; Glen Echo Today. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
