About this title

Synopsis:

This rich volume celebrates the mountains of the world with twenty-two literary works that range over three continents and two hundred years.

From the Back Cover:

The Lyons Press is proud to announce the third book in its series of nature anthologies in partnership with The Nature Conservancy - the renowned conservation organization over 900,000 members strong, whose protection efforts span the globe. In this volume we celebrate the mountains of the world with twenty-two literary works that range over three continents and two hundred years, including: John Muir on crossing the Cumberland Mountains; Henry David Thoreau on Maine's Ktaadn; Rob Schultheis on the Colorado Plateau: Isabella Byrd's bold ascent in the Rocky Mountains in the 1870s; David Rains Wallace on the Central American mountain ranges; a Denali rescue mission recounted by Jonathan Waterman; and Jon Krakauer on climbing Devil's Thumb.The mystical powers of mountains inspire writers to heights of clarity and insight. Share the experiences of William Bartram, Aldo Leopold, Barbara Kingsolver, William O. Douglas, Rick Bass, Dave Petersen, A. B. Guthrie Jr., and a host of the finest nature writers past and present. For anyone who loves the mountains, for appreciators of fine natural history as well as those who love climbing literature, The Mountain Reader will be an exhilarating experience.
