The Book. The Mountain. Everything in between.

Other mountain books

Though I’m biased toward one particular mountain and one particular book, the alpine canon is full of adventurous, inspiring, heartbreaking, and possibly even life-changing works. There are also a lot of lemons in there too. But in this post, we’ll focus on just a few of the better ones, a few of my favorites.

Art Davidson’s classic account of the first winter ascent of Denali.

 Another memorable recounting of a first, this one of the first successful climb of a treacherous wall on the Eiger in Switzerland known as the White Spider.

 A must-read for anyone who wants to know anything and everything about Washington’s Mount Rainier.

 This one probably needs no explanation.
