    ePUB Maurice Isserman ä Continental Divide ePUB ✓ ä continental free, divide download, Continental Divide PDFAfter reading a lukewarm review in the Times I was just mildly interested in reading this one But then I actually read it and granted after sorta slogging through the first 100 some pages had trouble putting it down Yes the story basically ends in 1964 which of course leaves out a good bit of mountaineering But there's little here that doesn't need to be here so perhaps someone else might write a book about the last 50 years of US mountaineering I found Isserman's history inspirational I'm inspired to read books on the subject and I'm inspired to climb

    ePUB Maurice Isserman ä Continental Divide ePUB ✓ ä continental free, divide download, Continental Divide PDFGiven my Everest obsession I thought a book about how American mountains were conuered would be right up my alley Alas this book was not uite what I expected it to be There was history of humanity's very early relationships with mountains they almost didn't acknowledge their existence other than as obstacles much the way people didn't really acknowledge the color blue until the last couple millennia they just didn't have a framework to understand these things fascinating There was exploration and early efforts made by a few very forgotten souls to climb mountains in the early days of American settlement mostly so they could see what was on the other side and how hard it would be to get

    ePUB Maurice Isserman ä Continental Divide ePUB ✓ ä continental free, divide download, Continental Divide PDFI was unimpressed with this book In part because I've read so much about mountaineering and the memoirs of mountaineers that this book didn't tell me much I didn't already know And also because I've read Isserman's book written wStewart Weaver Fallen Giants The History of Himalayan Mountaineering from the Age of Empire to the Age of Extremes and that liberally covered American moutaineers' expeditions in the Himalayas some of which were repeated here What was new to me was the history of the mountaineering clubs in America like the Appalachian Mountain Club and the Sier

    ePUB Maurice Isserman ä Continental Divide ePUB ✓ ä continental free, divide download, Continental Divide PDFA great read Isserman does a wonderful job at pulling his reader in with endless stories of adventure challenge and death What I think is great about this book is that he focuses on the major shifts in climbing he keeps his stories tied to the fact that these climbers were all making history one climb at a time Man’s desire for mountains is all encompassing he seeks them for solitude for hope for freedom for salvation Yet in the end all one will find is a cold rock resisting the attempt to tame it
