[...] gifted with bold visuals and a beguiling sense of
appreciation for nature's beauties.
The art is striking: filling each page, beautifully angular graphics interpret rather than
literally depict what is happening on and around these massive natural formations, many
with supporting captions.
From icy glaciers to fiery volcanic peaks and summits made of rock and sand, the
breathtaking mountains of the world emerge in a comprehensive and engaging
compilation that explores the highest heights known to man."
