Detailed Product Description

Tacoma, Putnam's, 1911, 2nd edition. 143 pp, 190 ills, 8 in color, map with color at back. This edition is expanded from the previous year's first edition. Handsome pictorial cloth hardcover. Fine condition.

Full title: The Mountain That Was "God": Being A Little Book About The Great Peak Which The Indians Named "Tacoma" But Which is Officially Called "Rainier"

Nice early Rainier book with many photos and descriptions of climbs, it aims to show the grandest and most accessible of our extinct volcanoes from all points of view.

Like the glacial rivers, its text will be found a narrow stream flowing swiftly amidst great mountain scenery. Its abundant illustrations cover not only the giants' fairyland south of the peak, but also the equally stupendous scenes that await the adventurer who penetrates the harder trails and climbs the greater glaciers of the north and east slopes.
