“In the Years of the Mountains: Exploring the World’s High Ranges in Search of Their Culture, Geology, and Ecology” by David Scott Gilligan
Publication Date: June 1, 2006
For the past ten years David Gilligan has climbed all of the major mountain ranges in the world. His resulting narrative, In the Years of the Mountains, takes readers to the highest places on four continents for an up-close consideration of the cultural, geological, and biological make up of mountains. From the Swiss Alps to the Himalayas, on to New Zealand, and then back to the North American cordillera, Gilligan treats readers to adventure mixed with science and history.
