    PaperbackÜ Continental Divide ePUB ´ continental download, divide ebok, Continental Divide PDFAn enjoyable and interesting work that brought to light several of the developments toward American mountaineering going from the early summits in the White Mountains to the founding of climbing clubs and then the rise of Yosemite rock climbing The author includes the expeditions into Alaska and Himalayas along with their impact on the climbing clubs and community The history trails off as the last golden age 60s passes into history leaving out my favorite climber and other contemporary climbers Ed Viesturs who is a modern climber and one of the ones culminating this history
