Here is a monumental in size (15x11"), conception, execution celebration of the wild places of all the continents. Wolfe (cover photographer to Stern, National Geographic, Smithsonian ) displays his splendid control and use of light, shadow, tone in 100 color plates. He is partial to mountains and rock (a notable climber himself) and renders these subjects with an artist's eye and the patience of a stone. Complementing these pictures are legends and myths from around the world. It is a shock (and great pleasure) to note that the publisher of this finely designed and finished book is not Rizzoli, not Abrams, but Beyond Words, Inc., 13950 NW Pumpkin Ridge Road, Hillsboro, OR 97123.
