Synopses & Reviews
From the Martime Alps behind Nice, to the sunwashed Julians of Slovenia, the Alpine chain is one of the most scenically diverse and exciting ranges on earth. With glacier and snowfield, meadow, scree and rockface, its subtle beauty is revealed in a variety of landscape features, while peaks such as Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau are mountains of which dreams are made and ambitions forged. But the best of the Alps are not the sole preserve of the climber, as this collection of photographs prove. The winding trail taken by walkers and trekkers leads to countless vantage points that unfold scenes of heart-stopping splendour, and Alpine addict Kev Reynolds has selected a hundred of his favourites -- chosen from four decades of exploration in every corner of the chain.
