Detailed Product Description

Seattle, Mountaineers, 1987 3rd edition, 3rd printing. 364 pp, b/w photos, illustrations, maps. Softcover. Very Good.

Loaded with anecdotes, sketches, and over 100 photos. The author has summited the mountain over 50 times by more than a dozen routes, including three firsts. This 40th Anniversary edition includes restored illustrations and historical photographs, and a new foreword by Ed Viesturs.

Even in the days when Native Americans were the only inhabitants of the Northwest, magnificent Mount Rainier was an object of awe and reverence the mountain that was God. The Native Americans reacted to the mountain by giving it a wide berth; the white man, however, began immediately to explore and climb its steep, glacier-clad slopes. One of the world's greatest volcanoes, Rainier is a meeting ground of dense forests, alpine meadows, and glaciers. It's also a constant lure for hikers, skiers, and mountain climbers.

This book is the first complete documentation of the significant events in the climbing history of Mount Rainier, updated through early 1979. It covers geology, glaciology and climate; the discovery and early climbs before 1900; the pioneering efforts on over 35 routes, winter and summer; notable summit climbs and mountain tragedies on the steep slopes, and the guides who have led summit-seekers over the years.

Fascinating reading for the increasing numbers who respond to the challenge of Rainier, this book is also enjoyable for all to whom Mount Rainier is a symbol of one of nature's last testing grounds for man's physical enterprise and endurance.
