Climb Every Mountain: A Journey to the Earth's Most Spectacular High Altitude Locationsby Colin Monteath
Selected from expeditions that mountaineer, writer, and photographer Colin Monteath has undertaken since 1993, Climb Every Mountain sees Monteath exploring the world's polar regions-crossing South Georgia following Sir Ernest Shackleton's route, traversing Greenland with a dog team, and trekking in Nepal and Bhutan. In Tibet, Monteath journeys in the footsteps of the legendary climber George Mallory, probing some of Everest's best-kept secrets. Throughout the book, Monteath reflects on the pioneering achievements of the early explorers, and touches on vital historical and conservation issues. Lists of relevant resources at the end of each chapter allow readers to further explore the natural history of these remote regions.
Colin Monteath is one of New Zealand's best known and most widely published photographers and writers specializing in the world's polar and mountain regions. Monteath is also the author of Antarctica, available from Warwick Publishing. Monteath lives in Christchurch, New Zealand.
