dc.description.abstract Mountains stand tall in the quest for understanding nature-society interactions. To study this mountain symbolism without a careful consideration of how mountain literature reflects and shapes geographical imaginations would only tell part of the story, much like evoking a tale of Sir Edmund Hillary without Tensing Norgay, or George Mallory without Andrew Irvine. Mountains of the Mind and The Artificial Horizon embrace the mystique of mountains fervently as they each quote liberally from epic tales of mountain lore. en_US
