About the Author:

Born in 1927 in Orlando, Florida, Bradford B. Van Diver lived in New York state until age 18. He graduated from the University of Colorado where he began a history of rock climbing, initiating first ascents on Longs Peak and the Flatirons with his climbing partner. He earned his PhD from the University of Washington. He taught at the Universities of Colorado, Washington, as Guest Professor at Munich, Germany, and retired as emeritus professor of geology at SUNY Potsdam where he taught for 24 years.
He was the author of six books, primarily for the laymen, one of which was a photographic album of geology as art. He was an avid photographer, mountaineer, hiker, woodworker, kayaker, skier, and world traveler. He was a member of the Adirondack Mountain Club, the Colorado Hiking Club, and the Carolina Mountain Club as well as a member of the Adirondack 46ers and the AMC 111 Club, a group that has climbed all 111 peaks in the Northeast over 4000’. He was a long-term member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Canton, NY and of the Asheville Church.

Review:

"The book is rich in photographs, diagrams and sketches. . . . It is like having Van Diver along for the ride, directing and explaining . . . the expert at your elbow." --The Conservationist
