Accompanied by vivid accounts of daring mountaineers and affectionate anecdotes from people who live near the mountains, these photographs evoke the breathtaking beauty of the world’s most majestic mountains and convey their constant allure. The substantial SuperCube format provides an appropriately grand vehicle in which to pay tribute to these natural wonders.
