Illustrated comprehensive guide to mountains, including their formation and erosion, geology and physical geography, snow, ice, avalanches and weather. Also includes the people and cultures of mountainous regions and mountain sports.

Some 20 of the world's most significant mountain ranges are profiled in this concise guide for general readers. Mountaineer and former geography teacher Scott also explains how mountains are formed and eroded and describes the plants, animals, and people who live on and around them. Other topics include mountain sports and the history of climbing. The volume (which lacks bibliographical references) is illustrated throughout with color photographs and maps.
