    Book Review: The Mountains of California by John Muir John Muir () was a Scottish-American naturalist, author, philosopher, and conservationist. Muir was a pioneer in Banff Mountain Book Competition Award Winners. The focus all throughout the book is not on the summits themselves but the struggle, and dedication required to reach them, peaking with his climb of the Rupal face on Nanga Parbat. And it also gives a glimpse into the world of the elite mountaineers and their way of thinking and reasoning.

    Renowned crack climber Pete Whittaker regularly teaches climbing courses and presents at climbing events around the world, from festivals such as the Kendal Mountain Film Festival, The Telegraph London Outdoor Show, and Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival, to local climbing clubs, gyms, and walls. He makes his home in Sheffield, England. Visit him online at How about mountaineering book recommendations? Since we have a good list of mountaineering movie suggestions going, I'd love to get recommendations for good mountaineering books! I'm about to leave for a trip through the Alps and want some good, entertaining reading (not so much of the teaching/guide/training variety) material.
