Celebrate the "Wild Nearby"
Find Beauty and Renewal in the Wild Nearby

Perhaps you saw leaves and needles taking on their fall hues this past week as you hiked to Lake Ann or Colchuck Lake. Or maybe you felt its rocky surface in your hand as you climbed Liberty Bell or at the Index Town Wall. Perhaps  you watched the moon rise over glaciated peaks from a backcountry basecamp high above Washington Pass. Whatever your last experience with the North Cascades, you'll find it reflected in the latest release from Mountaineers Books.

The North Cascades: Finding Beauty and Renewal in the Wild Nearby features:

  • The rich history and future challenges facing this remote yet accessible ecosystem from Pulitzer Prize–winning author William Dietrich
  • Day hikes, bicycle rides, paddling expeditions, ski outings, and car-camping options in the region by guidebook author Craig Romano
  • A piece from Gary Snyder’s North Cascades journals
  • Profiles of people who characterize the landscape, written by the North Cascade Institute’s Christian Martin
  •  An inspirational foreword by Richard Louv
  • Inspiring color photographs from over thirty photographers, including Steph Abegg, Paul Bannick, Ed Cooper, Ethan Welty, and Art Wolfe, among others

The book is available online from Mountaineers Books and in bookstores.

Celebrate the Wild Nearby!

And, most importantly, continue to hike, climb, paddle, and cycle through the North Cascades, experiencing all the beauty and renewal that is on offer here!
