    Book details

Mountains invites us into a world of intense beauty and timelessness as we gaze at hundreds of pictures of mountains from unique angles and hear the stories of those who climb or live on them. Since the late 19th century, mountaineering has fed our desire for conquest, challenge, and knowledge, attracting us irresistibly to the highest peaks. Mt. Everest, the Matterhorn, K2, Mont Blanc, Cerro Torre, and Mount McKinley have become opportunities for us to test our limits: they are mysterious stone divinities that challenge us and from which we can draw lessons. This book presents the most fascinating aspects of mountains, both from a human point of view and in terms of visual beauty. The trademark three-dimensionality of the Cubebook format is perfectly suited for conveying the majesty of mountains-here form and content fit beautifully as photographs and text together form a 'cube' for the reader to explore. Mountains is wonderful to give as a gift or to keep in order to experience the powerful emotions that only the world's noblest peaks are able to stimulate.
