Detailed Product Description

2005, 1st edition. 736 pp, 500+ color photos. 'Mountains' invites us into a world of intense beauty and timelessness as we gaze at hundreds of pictures of mountains from unique angles and hear the stories of those who climb or live on them. Since the late 19th century, mountaineering has fed our desire for conquest, challenge, and knowledge, attracting us irresistibly to the highest peaks. Introduction by Roberto Mantovani.

Mount Everest, the Matterhorn, K2, Mont Blanc, Cerro Torre, and Mount McKinley have become opportunities for us to test our limits; they are mysterious stone divinities that challenge us and from which we can draw lessons. This book presents the most fascinating aspects of mountains, both from a human point of view and in terms of visual beauty. In this eye-catching format, photographs and text together form a 'cube' for the reader to explore. 'Mountains' is a very affordable volume to give as a gift or to keep. Contains over 500 high quality colour photographs.

An unusual mountain photo book, because it is a square hardcover, 6'x6'. Edited by some of the best names in mountaineering today, with photos by the worlds top photographers, including Stefano Ardito, Art Wolfe, Mario Colonel, Greg Epperson, Alessandro Gogna, Colin Monteath, Galen Rowell, and many others.

The photos show peaks, ranges, valleys, climbers in action, wildlife, etc in all the world's ranges, including Antarctica, Atlas, Patagonia, Australia, Austria, Bolivia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, India, Kenya, Nepal, Norway, New Zealand, Pakistan, Peru, the USA, Switzerland, Tanzanaia, Tibet and Uganda, plus more. A terrific gift book, or even take it along to basecamp for inspiration! Hardcover, New, pictorial cover, no DJ issued.
