Detailed Product Description
Portland, Oregon Historical Society, 1962, 1st edition (hardcover and paperback were simultaneously released). 257 pp, 9 b/w plates. Softcover. Fine.

A classic of Rainier history. Includes a summary of all early ascents and near ascents of Mount Rainier, Washington, from 1852-1894.
  
"The spirit of the pioneering mountaineer emanates from Mountain Fever, a superb account of the 19th century conquests of the highest and most imposing of Pacific Northwest mountains, Mt. Rainier. [This] is the history of organized mountaineering in the Northwest as well as of Mt. Rainier and those who accepted its challenge. It carries those stories to the turn of the century when Mt. Rainier achieved the status of a national park." - The Oregonian

"Haines' story begins with the day Capt. George Vancouver sighted the snowy mountain in 1792. The author sifted accounts of the first climbers, Dr. William F. Tolmie who went to the ridge above the forks of the Mowich River in 1833, the Bailey-Edgar-Ford party, which may have reached the summit in 1851, the unknown climbers guided by a Yakima Indian, Saluskin, in 1855 and the 1857 attempt of Lieut. August V. Kautz. These were the men who penetrated the wilderness without blazing a trail." -Seattle Times

"This book-a collector's item-will be cherished by all who have set foot on the peak and who have been inspired by its distant views." - William O. Dougla
