    MOBI Continental Divide ePUB ↠ º blackswanteacouk continental kindle, divide pdf, Continental Divide PDFAfter reading a lukewarm review in the Times I was just mildly interested in reading this one But then I actually read it and granted after sorta slogging through the first 100 some pages had trouble putting it down Yes the story basically ends in 1964 which of course leaves out a good bit of mountaineering But there's little here that doesn't need to be here so perhaps someone else might write a book about the last 50 years of US mountaineering I found Isserman's history inspirational I'm inspired to read books on the subject and I'm inspired to climb mountains

    MOBI Continental Divide ePUB ↠ º blackswanteacouk continental kindle, divide pdf, Continental Divide PDFGiven my Everest obsession I thought a book about how American mountains were conuered would be right up my alley Alas this book was not uite what I expected it to be There was history of humanity's very early relationships with mountains they almost didn't acknowledge their existence other than as obstacles much the way people didn't really acknowledge the color blue until the last couple millennia they just didn't have a framework to understand these things fascinating There was exploration and early efforts made by a few very forgotten souls to climb mountains in the early days of American settlement mostly so they could see what was on the other side and how hard it would be to get there I found all of this uite fascinating Good startThen there was the recounting of how the philosophy of climbing mountains started to change as American settlement pushed west

    MOBI Continental Divide ePUB ↠ º blackswanteacouk continental kindle, divide pdf, Continental Divide PDFI chose to read A History of American Mountaineering for a couple of reasons I have an innate love for mountains As a flatlander in Kansas I venture to the mountains usually in Colorado every chance I get Secondly I have always been fascinated by technical climbing and those intrepid souls who are drawn to the sport Although I have never been a technical climber I have managed to summit a few mountains in my life and thoroughly enjoyed the experience I suspected when I chose this book that I would be entertained by reading

    MOBI Continental Divide ePUB ↠ º blackswanteacouk continental kindle, divide pdf, Continental Divide PDFI was unimpressed with this book In part because I've read so much about mountaineering and the memoirs of mountaineers that this book didn't tell me much I didn't already know And also because I've read Isserman's book written wStewart Weaver Fallen Giants The History of Himalayan Mountaineering from the Age of Empire to the Age of Extremes a

    MOBI Continental Divide ePUB ↠ º blackswanteacouk continental kindle, divide pdf, Continental Divide PDFA great read Isserman does a wonderful job at pulling his reader in with endless stories of adventure challenge and death What I think is great about this book is that he focuses on the major shifts in climbing he keeps his stories tied to the fact that these climbers were all making history one climb at a time Man’s desire for mountains is all encompassing he seeks them for solitude for hope for freedom for salvation Yet in the end all one will find is a cold rock resisting the attempt to tame it

    MOBI Continental Divide ePUB ↠ º blackswanteacouk continental kindle, divide pdf, Continental Divide PDFAn enjoyable and interesting work that brought to light several of the developments toward American mountaineering going from the early summits in the White Mountains to the founding of climbing clubs and then the rise of Yosemite rock climbing The author includes the expeditions into Alaska and Himalayas along with their impact on the climbing clubs and community The history trails off as the last golden age 60s passes into history leaving out my favorite climber and other contemporary climbers Ed Viesturs who is a modern climber and one of the ones culminating this history
