Detailed Product Description

Dallas, 1994, 1st edition. 182 pp, 150 color photos. Large format hardcover with dust jacket. As New condition.

This is a heavy, large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail or International Mail.

A close-up description of ten of the world's great massifs: Mt Cook, Kilimanjaro, Annapurna, Patagonia, much more!

To his credit, Bangs was the first to run some of the world's roughest, least accessible rivers. To guide expeditions through wilderness areas, he also founded an adventure travel company that reached across the globe. After a career built around familiarity with rafting, negotiating rapids, and sailing high seas, Bangs decided to take on mountain trekking.

Although Bangs' book recounts exploration of high-altitude mountain locales from Switzerland to Patagonia, it is perhaps even more about encounters with the select coterie of individuals whose lives are devoted to guiding others. Pamela Roberson's color photographs illustrate Bangs' forays into some of nature's most magnificent realms.

Photographer Pamela Roberson contributes well over a hundred full-color images of impressive mountain peaks in this discussion of wild climbing environments. Mountaineers - whether destination-oriented or armchair enthusiasts - will appreciate the majestic photos accompanied by nature writer Bangs' survey of the world's wild alpine places. - Midwest Book Review
