Synopsis: In a definitive and critically acclaimed work, Bernbaum explores and celebrates the ways in which people of diverse cultures have viewed mountains they revere throughout the world and takes readers on a fascinating journey to the world's most sacred peaks--Olympus, Sinai, Fuji, Kilimanjaro, and others. 121 photographs.
Review: Mountaineer and scholar of comparative religion Edwin Bernbaum knows his subject from experience as well as from texts. In his award-winning collection of luminous photographs, Sacred Mountains of the World, Bernbaum takes you through the sacred ranges of six continents, while weaving the stories of gods and spirits with those of explorers and mountaineers. The best, most substantive, book of its kind. --Brian Bruya
