Beschrijving

Among the grandest and most dramatic creations of nature, mountains are places where time seems meaningless, where spiritual presences are more intense, where magic and reality, history and legend interact. Since the end of the 19th century, mountaineering has been feeding modern man's thirst for conquest, challenge, and knowledge, wielding an irresistible attraction that brings climbers to the highest peaks and, at the same time, inviting them to discover the heart and soul of the peoples living in the high altitudes. Everest and Cervino, K2 and Mont Blanc, and Cerro Torre and McKinley - these and other great peaks have presented opportunities to advance and research human limits: they are mysterious stone divinities with whom to humankind can compare itself and learn. This volume features the most fascinating aspects, both from a panoramic perspective and a human perspective, of those parts of the earth closest to the sky. Spectacular images accompany the accounts of climbers, environmentalists, and journalists with a mountains and mountaineering specialty. Photographs and texts compose an original and contemporary 'cube' of text and photography: a specially designed volume, precious but low-priced, perfect as a gift or to keep. Through it the reader is able to experience the thrills that only the mountains can offer.
