Soul of the Heights is the story of a pioneering climber with a passion for, and lifetime dedication to, the majestic mountains of North America. First conquering the awesome faces and peaks―many of them previously unclimbed―then photographing them with an intimate eye, Ed Cooper has maintained this love affair with the mountains for more than fifty years.

His unique story evokes the now-legendary early days of mountaineering and includes exclusive first-hand accounts by climbers of that era about many of the first ascents of new routes that have since become top destinations for new generations of climbers. These historic ascents include routes in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State; the “Chief,” near Squamish, British Columbia; the Bugaboos, also in B.C.; and El Capitan in Yosemite Valley, California. These ascents were all achieved in the 1950s and early ’60s at a time when climbing standards were rising dramatically.

Fascinated by the challenge of the heights, Ed Cooper became the first “climbing bum” in the Pacific Northwest, where he rapidly acquired a reputation as one of the most important all-around climbers of his generation. This book provides rare insight into the world of mountaineering and rock climbing during that era, revealing the intensely competitive nature of the sport at a time when so many opportunities were available for carving a place in climbing history as the first to complete a new challenge.

The young climber’s evolving quest to photograph the essence of the mountains he held in such awe resulted in a series of spectacular portraits of many of the best-known peaks of North America. These images provide the visual drama in Ed Cooper’s story, which also contains many historically interesting photographs of early climbs, and of such noted mountain personalities as Norman Clyde, Warren Harding, and Galen Rowell.

I climbed Mount Hood with Ed on thanksgiving day 1968. We were in college together. He is one of the great climbers of our time. I highly recommend this book.

Excellent pics from the golden(and bygone) era of film photography-from an expert mountaineer & skilled rock climber with an eye for detail and mountain photography who took the time, care and energy to haul all that gear into perilous places to capture their beauty like nobody else could

I gave this as a gift to a person who is really into hiking/climbing and was told it was a good book.

A marvelous mix of pioneering mountaineering style, spectacular photography, and lifestyles. Even without my added interest due to familiarity with northwest mountaineering in that period and Ed Cooper's mountaineering accomplishments and reputation, this would be a fascinating book.

I bought this book initially for the fabulous mountain images. But as soon as I started reading, I was totally hooked. Here's a guy who pioneered the mountain climbing movement. He was the first guy EVER to scale many crazy sheer rock walls. His descriptions are intriguing and refreshing. I say refreshing because there's no hint of any "look how awesome I am" tone. I just felt like I was at a cocktail party with this very cool, down-to-earth guy telling me a story. And the pictures are stunning. It was interesting to read about the making of such photos without too much boring, technical detail. Although the detail IS included at the back for those who are interested. All in all, it is a great book that would make a perfect gift for anyone who enjoys mountain photography and/or adventure reading. Now I have to hurry off and buy the US Rockies version.
