This outstanding reference work is the first A-Z, English language compilation on the world's mountains. It contains definitions, explanations, and clarifications in more than 2,300 entries, which vary in length from a brief sentence to detailed overviews of more complex subjects. It includes listings of many specific mountains, but more important, it is replete with geological terminology, birds and animals, flowers and trees, climbers and mountaineers, as well as associated tasks such as logging, mining, skiing, and climbing. The Mountain Encyclopedia is invaluable as a source of data and information, but it is also enjoyable to read straight through.
