This anthology of 25 stories, published from 1877 to the present, collects the most riveting, real-life adventure stories from America's oldest mountaineering and conservation journal, Appalachia. The explorers chronicled push the limits – of endurance, weather, altitude, or personal achievement. Some made history, such as the first American climber to ascend Kilimanjaro in 1932; others, such as the leader of an 1896 team attempting a first ascent of Canada’s Mount Lefroy, never return. Freak accidents, legendary perseverance, and singularly colorful personalities as well as climbing luminaries such as Bradford Washburn, Elizabeth Knowlton, and Fritz Wiessner all figure into this fascinating, illustrated, collection.
