An inspiring collection of evocative images collected by lifelong mountaineer Sandy Hill, who has a singular knowledge, understanding, and experience of the world’s highest places. Powerful, beautiful, wild, sublime, and forbidding, the world’s summits are often considered the last real frontier. Mountain is a luxuriously illustrated celebration of mountains and of the sense of wonder and awe that the sight of this geography can evoke. In this stunning collection of photographs and art, the very personal relationship that people have with mountains is conveyed in exceptional images from around the world. Spanning two centuries, this book contains rarely seen images from such legendary nature photographers as Galen Rowell, Peter Beard, Ansel Adams, and Frank Smythe and photographs taken by daring mountaineers who celebrate the beauty, wonder, and spectacle of the heights, making this a unique and spectacular tribute to the mountains of the world. Included are essays by Jennifer Jordan, Erling Kagge, Robert MacFarlane, Nando Parrado, Phil Powers, Jack Tackle, and others. A portion of the book’s proceeds go to the American Alpine Club Library. This massive tome weighs over six pounds.
