The Mountains

Author: Stewart Edward White

In 1904, it was said of Stewart Edward White’s book, “The Mountains,” that the great outdoors awakens under White’s pen as he writes of his wanderings in the mountains of the West. He does not conceal the hardships, the dangers, and discomforts of mountain travel, as he shares practical advice on pack horses, camp food, camp gear, formal tourists on the trail in Yosemite, cowboys, prospectors, fishing and golden trout, the gigantic redwoods, and the fauna and flora, along with the beauty and enjoyment of spending time in nature. He also writes with humor of the tenderfoot, a man who wonders the mountain trails without ever learning the true lessons of the country.
