Product Details

Praise

“In this beautiful book, Margret Grebowicz examines the many meanings of mountaineering, then and now: what these meanings tell us about ourselves, and what they tell us about mountains as well.” – Steven Shaviro, author of Discognition

“A philosophical speed-climb, a topo map of our new Terra Incognita. I finished it grateful for a new sense of clarity.”
Kim Stanley Robinson

“A treasure trove of insights exploring and critiquing the idea of climbing – upward pursuit -– in all its forms. Generous, fascinating, and written in sharp and lucid prose, Mountains and Desire illuminates an intoxicating and dangerous obsession through a startling range of material.” – Martin MacInnes, author of Infinite Ground

“A fascinating attempt to answer the eternal question – why are you going up there? – for a new century. It will spur many to think more deeply.” – Bill McKibben, author of Wandering Home


“Offers a timely appraisal of our relationship with high places.” – Caught by the River
