Detailed Product Description
Oslo Norway, 1977, 1st edition. 201 pp, hundreds of color and b/w photos, photo end papers. Large format tan linen hardcover with slightly worn dust jacket, book is fine. Fine condition overall.

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

Vera Henriksen has written much of the text of this edition of Jotunheimen, and has translated from the Norwegian the articles of its other contributors. Authors include Torgeir T. Garmo, Claus Helberg, Bjorn Halvorsen, Knut A. Nilsen and Rie Bistrup with General Editor Finn P. Nyquist. 

Beautifully illustrated photo book of one of Norway's treasures. As mountains go, this jumble of mountains are neither spectacularly high, nor peculiar in any way, but they form a wilderness of craggy peaks that is crisscrossed by valleys, ruggedly barren or with lush pastures, dotted with lakes of varying hues, capped by glaciers, and alive with tumbling streams and waterfalls.
