Black-and-white historical images, technical drawings, and typographical maps of mountains throughout the world illustrate many of the detailed entries.Notable is the fact that many of the entries and photographs are based on the authors' first-hand experiences skiing, hiking, bouldering, climbing, and mountaineering throughout the world to obtain the extraordinary images and data.

For readers who are fascinated by facts and figures, listings of the world's 1,000 highest peaks, 4,000-meter peaks in the Alps, 6,000-meter peaks in the Andes, North America's 14,000-Footers, the world's highest volcanoes, major unclimbed peaks above 7,000-meters, and the high points in the 50 United States and the 13 Canadian provinces and territories conclude this essential manual to the mountains.
