Detailed Product Description

An entertaining, turbocharged race among the high mountain passes of six alpine countries. ―Liesl Schillinger, New York Times Book Review


NY, 2017, 1st edition. 318 pp, ills.  For centuries the Alps have been witness to the march of armies, the flow of pilgrims and Crusaders, the feats of mountaineers, and the dreams of engineers. In The Alps, Stephen OShea ("a graceful and passionate writer"―Washington Post) takes readers up and down these majestic mountains. Journeying through their 500-mile arc across France, Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, Austria, and Slovenia, he explores the reality behind historic events and reveals how the Alps have profoundly influenced culture and society. New hardcover with dust jacket.
