The story is of multiple overlays of discovery and conquest: European and American explorers and sea captains, fur-traders, rail-road builders, surveyors of international boundaries, settlers, gold prospectors, mountaineers, timber barons, tourists and finally the Forest Service and National Park administrations.
Two of the narratives are recounted in detail: the story of the survey of the 49th parallel, with its clear contrasts between the British and American approaches, and the account of early conquests of the major peaks, told with intimate relish by a fellow climber.
Made in USA.
