Detailed Product Description
Seattle, The Mountaineers, 1987. 200 pp, b/w photos. Softcover. Fine.

This collection of 14 first-person accounts by people who explored on and climbed Mount Rainier between 1833 and 1894 recreates the almost mystical attraction the great volcano has long held for mountaineers and writers. From diaries, old newspapers, books and now-antique magazines, Schullery has pulled together the words of those whose names are entwined with Rainier's history: William Fraser Tolmie, Theodore Winthrop, August Katz, Hazard Stevens, George Bayley, J. Warner Fobes, Allison Brown, John Muir, Fay Fuller, George Dickson, Philemon Van Trump and Olin Wheeler.
