Fed up of anaemic books about mountains, about being poor and happy and mystical fulfilment? Then this is the book for you, tearing the veil from the culture clashes and conflicts on the hills. What happens if you go in search of the American Dream in Colorado, or Celtic Twilight in the Cuillins? And how do the mountains alter the pattern of male/female sexual behaviour? This book presents a different approach, but one that aims to answer just why the mountains exert such fascination over so many people.
