Read full description of the books:



Mount Rainier is the largest and most dangerous volcano in the country. Looming massively above the rugged Cascade Range in Washington State, it is visited by millions, climbed by thousands, and romanticized as the most potent icon of the region. Yet it is a mountain that few truly know. In The Measure of a Mountain, Seattle writer Bruce Barcott sets out to know Rainier. His method is exploratory, meandering, personal. In a masterful work of narrative journalism, Barcott adroitly explores not only the natural place of Rainier, but also the psychology and meaning of all mountains.
