Out of the maze of valleys A THOUSAND MOUNTAINS SHINING From the fire and ice of the northern volcanoes to the peaks of the Southern Alps and the granite walls of Fiordland, Charles Brasch’s thousand mountains have always been a dominant feature of the New Zealand landscape. Writes Ray Knox, former guide and editor of the book: “Like people, mountains can be seen in different lights, as remote, uncaring, hostile, friendly, inspiring – and sometimes even full of fun. There is truth in all of them.” And they can all be found in this unique and sensitively compiled collection from our explorers, mountaineers, guides, writers and poets. From high alpine exploration and adventure to just plain everyday experiences and observations, A Thousand Mountains Shining is a new collection which will delight all who are fascinated by our mountain world. Softcover, 237 pages. First edition copy. In good preloved condition with a stain evident on the front cover.
