Meadow and Glacier: Mountaineering in the Wind River Range
Meadow and Glacier is a history of exploration and mountaineering in Wyoming’s mighty Wind River Range. Considered by many to be the most alpine range in the entire U.S. Rocky Mountains, the Wind River Range has lured mountaineers to its remote wilderness for over 150 years to climb the peaks, glaciers, and granite walls crowding 80 miles of the Continental Divide. In this book, author and mountaineer Jack Smith provides a collection of exciting tales, photographs, and maps celebrating the range’s colorful mountaineering history. From Benjamin Bonneville’s foray into the range in 1833 up through the pioneering big wall climbs of the 1960s and 1970s, Meadow and Glacier explores the successes, failures, trials, and tribulations of those daring early explorers and mountaineers as they traveled through and climbed in this rugged, remote, and beautiful Wyoming alpine wilderness.
