Sacred Mountains – Ancient Wisdom and Modern Meanings –

Adrian Cooper

“What draws people to the mountains? An intimate encounter with elemental forces; solitude; the need to find themselves in testing the limits of endurance?

Mountains mean many things to many people. For Adrian Cooper, the people he interviews in this book and thousands of others across the world mountains represent sacred spaces where one can still experience the spiritual.

Drawing on personal experiences, the classics of mountain literature and the world’s religions Cooper presents a visionary answer to the question eternally asked of mountaineers: Why?”
