The Shelf2Life Mountaineering Collection provides a unique glimpse
into the history and evolution of mountaineering through the late
19th and early 20th centuries. From historical maps, first-hand
accounts of early summits, descriptions of peaks and wilderness
areas to detailed mountaineering proofs, enthusiasts can now
experience the thrill of the greatest peaks as they were in the
early part of the century. Further, in-depth discussions of
traditional equipment, technique and routes are a fascinating study
in the evolution of the sport. Given the recent explosion of
interest in mountaineering, these books are an excellent
opportunity to revisit the roots and origins of the sport: they
offer a valuable historical perspective as well as important
information about the landscape and geography of the past.
