Synopsis: Featuring an extra-sturdy library binding! Here is an original and exciting new guide to the enthralling challenges of life and death on the world's greatest mountain ranges. Spectacular, full-color photographs of secret mountain kingdoms and scenes of courageous climbers as they conquer the summits present an inspiring "eyewitness" view of the majesty of mountains. See castles among the clouds, cable cars, funiculars, and steep mountain roads, lost ruins of the fabled Inca and Aztec civilizations, and dramatic waterfalls and rock formations. Learn how mountains are created, where to seek shelter in an avalanche, why the body of Otzi, the Ice Man, lay undiscovered for centuries, and why the Crusaders perched castles on peaks. Discover the truth behind yetis and other mountain myths, what really happened on Mallory and Irvine's fatal expedition to Everest, the sacrifice of the ice maidens of the Andes, how climbers tackle a sheer rock face, and much much more.

Review: In this breathtaking volume from Dorling Kindersley's Eyewitness Books series, readers experience the majesty of mountains, from the forces in the earth that create them to the animals, vegetables, and minerals that inhabit them to the history of the many driven people who have climbed them. Spectacular photos and illustrations depict the awesome power of avalanches, the amazingly adaptive lives of mountaintop dwellers, the beauty of an Alpine spring, and much more. The book progresses from "Mountains of the world" through "Wind and weather," "People of the Himalayas," "Gods, myths, and legends," and "Early days of mountaineering" and concludes with discussions of mountain sports, the winter Olympics, and the environment. Only a few chapters focus on the granddaddy of them all, Mount Everest; still, the broad range of information the book provides on all things mountainous will rivet anyone with an interest in Everest. The book includes up-to-date details on Ötzi the Ice Man, mountain rescue techniques and climbing equipment, and the discovery in 1999 of the body of George Mallory, whose death on Everest in 1924 left a mystery--was he the first man to summit the mountain or did he die before reaching the top? Everest is guaranteed to fascinate. (Ages 9 and older) --Emilie Coulter
