Mountaineers Books is proud to reissue three stunning photography books by award-winning cameraman and mountaineer James Martin that feature some of the most beloved peaks in the West.

North Cascade Crest: Notes & Images From America's Alps
Mount Rainier: Notes & Images From Our Iconic Mountain
Sierra: Notes & Images From The Range Of Light

These books offer a visual journey through the craggy crest of the North Cascades, the glaciers and wilderness of Mount Rainier, and the luminescent peaks of the Sierra Nevada. Each book gives context to the images by detailing the geological history of the mountains, describing the flora and fauna and relating stories from the human climbing history of these peaks.

“James Martin’s words and images do the near impossible: bring the thrills of mountaineering alive in print.” -- Art Wolfe

The Sierra Nevada is one of the West’s most beautiful and famous mountain ranges. Here Martin shares an intimate view of its rugged landscape, describing his own early history of hiking in the range, attending Ansel Adams-led seminars in Yosemite, and once hiking from there to Mount Whitney and on to Sequoia.
