About this title

Synopsis:

Since the beginning of human history, mountains have had an extraordinary power to evoke the sacred in our lives. Regarded as places of mystery and spiritual attainment by people in every culture, mountains arouse feelings of reverence and awe. In this strikingly beautiful book Edwin Bernbaum combines exquisite photography with years of mountaineering and scholarly research to provide the most comprehensive study of sacred mountains to date.

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
