Abstract:

Distant Mountains takes an exciting look at ten of the world's most remarkable mountain regions -- from the wild peaks of Chilean Patagonia to the equatorial snows of East Africa, from the desert towers of the American Southwest to the majestic grandeur of the Himalayas and the Karakorum.

In 160 superb photographs, John Cleare captures the many moods of some of the world's most beautiful mountain ranges. His stunning images are accompanied by ten first-person accounts by writers chosen for their intimate acquaintance with the terrain.
