The second in a series of commemorative books done in conjunction with the 2002 Banff Mountain Summit and this year in celebration of the International Year of Mountains. This brings together the work of 19 renowned writers, explorers, adventurers, and scientists who share a passion for the world’s extreme environments. Subjects range from the culture, spirituality, and psychology of extreme landscapes to their consumption and conservation. The essays in this collection present a thoughtful and complete exploration of the enduring lure of mountains and their wild extremes. Includes first hand accounts from the Andes and the hidden valleys of Tibet to the wind-scoured fjords of Patagonia and the icy reaches of northern Greenland. This Deluxe Edition was produced with the signatures of almost all of the contributors; those of Child, Hill, and Simonson are additional.
