Overview

Developed in association with the Banff Centre for Mountain Culture, Extreme Landscape brings together the original work of 19 renowned writers, explorers, adventurers, and scientists who share a passion for, and a commitment to, the world's extreme environments. Ranging in subject from culture, spirituality, and psychology of extreme landscapes to their consumption and conservation, the diverse essays in this collection present a thoughtful and complete exploration of the enduring lure of mountains and their wild extremes.

Featuring contributions from such authors as Barry Lopez, Wade Davis, Gretel Ehrlich, and Reinhold Messner and first-hand accounts from the Andes and the hidden valleys of Tibet to the wind-scoured fjords of Patagonia and the icy reaches of northern Greenland, Extreme Landscape is a meditation on the indelible effect of extreme environments on our lives—and of our equally indelible impact on these landscapes.
