Mountains Of The Mind : A History Of A Fascination Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


WINNER OF THE GUARDIAN FIRST BOOK AWARDOnce we thought monsters lived there.

In the Enlightenment we scaled them to commune with the sublime.

Soon, we were racing to conquer their summits in the name of national pride.

In this ground-breaking, classic work, Robert Macfarlane takes us up into the mountains: to experience their shattering beauty, the fear and risk of adventure, and to explore the strange impulses that have for centuries lead us to the world's highest places.
