From the challenge of climbing Everest, to the cloud-shrouded mystery of the Mont Blanc, mountains have always exerted a pull on our hearts and minds. In this beautiful tribute to some of the world's most stunning landscapes, climbers, walkers, historians and journalists provide accounts of some of the greatest feats of human endurance, fascinating tales and intriguing facts about some of Earth's most interesting mountains. Foreword by Chris Bonington.

Each mountain holds its own challenges, history and spiritual significance and Joe Simpson's and Simon Yate's infamous adventure on the Siula Grande, a 21,000ft mountain in the Peruvian Andes is just one of a multitude of stories that could be told. In Voices From The  Mountains you can experience the majesty, grandeur and terrifying challenges presented by the world's greatest peaks.

Detailed information on location, height, attempts and history are accompanied by beautiful photography and the fascinating accounts of those who have lived their lives in the shadows of these towering pinnacles. Whether you're an armchair traveler, artist, climber or outdoor enthusiast, Voices from the Mountains provides a chance to head for the hills with some of our most experienced mountain guides for company.
