The Indian Alps and how we crossed them. Being a narrative of two years' residence in the Eastern Himlaya and two months' tour in the Interior. By a Lady Pioneer, Nina Mazuchelli.
"Would you see Nature in all her savage grandeur? Then follow me to her wildest solitudes—the home of the yâk, and the wild deer, the land of the citron, and the orange, the arctic lichen, and the pine—where, in deep Alpine valley, rivers cradled in gigantic precipices, and fed by icy peaks, either thunder over tempest-shattered rock, or sleep to the music of their own lullaby—even to the far East, amongst the Indian Alps. . . ."
Illustrated with a map, 10 very fine chromolithograph plates and over 140 text illustrations showing the scenery, people and the experiences of the mountaineering party.
This classic of mountaineeering literature also contains much on the people and scenery of the Himalayas. The writer was the first Englishwoman to have travelled so far into the Himalayas.
