Library Shelf Location 35.MACF
Publication Date 2004
Description "Mountains of the Mind" pursues an investigation into our emotional and imaginative responses to mountains, and how these have changed over the last few centuries. It is rich with literary and historical references, and punctuated by descriptions of the author's own climbing experiences. There are chapters on glaciers, geology, the pursuit of fear, the desire to explore the unknown and the desire to get to the summit, and the book ends with a gripping account of Mallory's attempt on Everest. This book is a good companion piece to the Monica Studer and Christoph Van Den Berg exhibition 'Package Holiday' at BALTIC (2005)
