Overview

Mountains have been symbolic since the beginning of time. Our imagination has always given life to their presence. We name them, even feature them in our history and our lives. John Maling has created a poem about and around the life of a mountain that touches the very life that bursts from its core to the inhabitants and majestic surroundings. Each line resonates with the spectacular photography taken by Grant Collier and John Maling. 32 inspiring and thoughtful lines enable the reader to climb with the author and photographers from the opening of the poem...Have you ever held a mountain, Cupped it gently in your hand, Felt the texture of its ridges, Sifted slow its granite sand, Brushed its trees and touched its meadows, Heard its glaciers grinding down, Felt wet and rocky muscle, Under flesh of green and brown?...to the closing. And then, the reader will immediately start from the beginning, savoring the words and photos once again.

    If you love the mountains, as I do, and are captivated and inspired by the majesty of tall, snow-capped peaks, you will at once identify with John's powerful and descriptive testament to them. Those who have climbed mountains and felt that connection that is like no other, John's words will resonate with you. The beautiful pictures will, for some, be reminders of a life-changing experience. For others, maybe fond memories of a wonderful adventure. But, for everyone, this amazingly beautiful book will be a treasure to be shared. Even the tasteful cover and construction of the book invites you to pick it up and "hold" it and treasure it just as John might hold a mountain in his mind and treasures it in his heart.
