We used this book as a guest book for our wedding and had guests choose a page to sign. My only gripe it that some of the photos are old and when made full page were a bit pixelated looking. Overall, a beautiful book. And while the essays are reasonably short - I thought they were tight, interesting to read and real. Felt like the writers sat down at their keyboard and wrote to their friend Sandy.

My daughter is a mountain climber. I thought this book would capture some of the beauty she has seen at lofty heights. She is very pleased with it

A diverse and breathtaking views of mountain ranges throughout the world. Mostly photos but some good editorial as wel. This is a book to sit down and peruse by the fire dreaming of all the beautiful mountains you would like to see in person.

The quality of the book is quite adequate. Author obviously loves mountains and provides annotation for the pictures that is complete and helpful. Excellent variety of "mountain subjects" including interesting older photos, good selection of subject mountains and some of the (mostly) guys who climb them. Text is interesting and not over done. All in all quite a good value. I have gone back to it several times already to re-enjoy the beauty of the subject matter and their presentation.

Beautiful book. Makes me kinda giggle everytime I read "Mountain by Sandy Hill" (get it!?) We used this book as a guest book for our wedding and had guests choose a page to sign.

My only gripe it that some of the photos are old and when made full page were a bit pixelated looking. Overall, a beautiful book.

After more than an hour the morning after it arrived, I was still slowly, slowly turning pages, and realized it was a much different book than I imagined. Yes, there are the amazing, stunning, jaw-dropping photographs from renowned photographers and climbers from Galen Rowell to Ed Viesturs, but I was surprised to see vintage photographs and amateur photographs. Had never heard of Ed Cooper, but am now a huge fan as there are a large handful of his warm, sweet photographs of his climbing partners and amazing shots from his archive.

Am still holding the image of the photograph of George Mallory's body found on Everest some 80 years later in my mind....I'd seen it briefly on the film documentary, but it is incredible to really study the all the details.

Feels like more than 200 photos, 351 pages - the credits list more than 160 contributors....who all gave their photos for free. Proceeds go to the American Alpine club. And while the essays are reasonably short - I thought they were tight, interesting to read and real. Felt like the writers sat down at their keyboard and wrote to their friend Sandy.

She's an interesting personality, often larger-than-life, one of very few women to climb all Seven Summits. I met her this past year, and was curious about the book. Was thoroughly impressed. I can only imagine how many photographs she hunted through to find these choices, so many I'd never seen. The selections feel personal, not from a committee assigned to collect photos, but from an individual with a sophisticated eye. The book has a flow with images well curated and selected for their unusual point-of-view or contribution to the sensibility of mountain climbing.

I thought I might give this book as a gift, now I need to buy a second copy...no way am I letting go of this one.

Some of us seem to have been born obsessed with mountains. Long before I can remember, I wanted to climb. As a young graduate student many decades ago I sailed from America to Europe, stepped off the boat, dropped my bags at Oxford, and immediately headed to Zermatt to climb my beloved Matterhorn which had been my dream ever since I was a very young kid just as some kids want to ride fire engines. From my earliest misty days my life has been a love affair with high mountains. During this journey I have collected books on mountains and mountaineering. The list is long. I am now 76 and their numbers crush me. But they are my children and I cannot deal with the emotion of giving any of them away. Rather than "downsizing" as I should be doing, in my path now appears this ultimate mountain photographic book of my lifetime. T.S. Eliot said "Dante and Shakespeare divide the modern world between them; there is no third." In terms of mountain photographic books, in my humble opinion there not only is no "third" but there is no "second" either. With bared head and bended knee I declare that for me there is only "Mountain" by Sandy Hill, published by Rizzoli. With great gratitude to them, "Mountain" now occupies pride of place in my collection.
