When we think back of all the adventures that brought so much meaning and inspiration in our lives, it’s easy to remember the books that set our imaginations on fire. Maybe it was a photo from the top of Mount Everest or the vivid writing of a masterful author describing the deep African jungle. Or perhaps it was the serene philosophical musings of Thorough and Muir that led us to to see for ourselves a larger world.
At Mountainous Words, we were raised on the good stuff: Edward Abbey, John Krakauer, Greg Child, Barry Lopez, Pierre Berton and countless other writers who not only inspired our pens but also our souls. We hope that our publications, whether they be straight-forward guide books or narratives from wild places, help you discover the beauty, danger and endless wonder of our fascinating world.
