MountainsBook - 1994
For a general or school-age audience, well-qualified contributors cover general geography and climatology, mountain formation, and volcanos; plant, animal, and human life; farming, mining, damming, and climbing; and of course the requisite discussion of the dangers of overuse. Attractively produced and abundantly illustrated with color photos in an oversize (9.75x12.5") format. Rodale is identified as the publisher, St. Martin's Press as the distributor; but Weldon Owen Pty Limited (Australia) is credited with original conception and production. No bibliography.
