KIRKUS REVIEW

In part an editing job- in part an interpretative one, this deals with twelve personalities, and the part mountains played in their philosophy, their thinking. In only two instances would even the mountain addict think of these men in relation to mountains. Dante, Petrarch, Rousseau, De Saussure, Goethe, the Wordsworths, John Keats, Ruskin, Leslie Stephen, Nietzsche, Pope Pius XI, Robert Falcon Scott -- these are the ""pioneers of Parnassus"" represented in this very specialized collection of essays.
