Detailed Product Description
CA, 2012, 1st edition. 126 pp, 75+ color photos. Through words and brilliant photographs, Tim Palmer presents both the raw power and stunning beauty of these luminous icescapes and the irreversible effects of climate change. This is an elegiac tribute to a fading landscape we should never forget. Hardcover, DJ, New.

“Califonia’s glaciers are unforgettable to anyone who has had the rare opportunity to climb to the edge of the ice and beyond. With his eye for nature and a sense of adventure, Tim Palmer presents a remarkable vision of those heights. His words and photos will motivate you to care deeply about what threatens that fragile wilderness and all that lies below it.” 

                                                   —Yvon Chouinard, owner and founder of Patagonia Inc.

“If you want one book about glaciers in California, this is it. Relating his enthralling adventures climbing what is left of these amazing glaciers, Tim Palmer shows us remarkable photos of scenes that will soon disappear.”

                                                  —Lester R. Brown, president of Earth Policy Institute

“A great adventure, with a sobering and powerful conclusion.” 

                                              —Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature

“Tim Palmer vividly captures the experience and challenge of exploring glaciers as well as our attraction to their cold fascinating details. His photographs are beautiful and he provides captivating historical and cultural descriptions to better appreciate these icy landscapes.” 

      —Andrew Fountain, director of Alpine Glacier Studies, Department of Geology, Portland State University
