About this book

This unique book celebrates and documents the incredible and colourful biodiversity of the mountain landscapes of eastern North America, covering all of the major alpine ecosystems in New England, New York, Quebec, Newfoundland, and Labrador. Twenty scientists, explorers, naturalists, and land managers from the United States and Canada have collaborated to create this definitive and beautiful account of the flora and fauna of the eastern alpine tundra.

"Jones and Willey's splendid natural history allows us an armchair visit and deepens our understanding of the alpine zones."
Long Trail News

"What a gift to mountain lovers! This labor of love will open your eyes to the eastern alpine world that stretches well past the top of Mount Washington and Mount Marcy. You'll read it and then reach for your calendar."
– Bill McKibben

"This detailed treatment of above-treeline areas of eastern North America packs an incredible amount of information into one comprehensive, attractive package. With hundreds of gorgeous photos and well-crafted, aesthetically appealing maps, it offers both a broad overview of the natural history of eastern alpine zones and detailed descriptions of specific regions and ranges."
– Ben Kimball, author of Trail Running Western Massachusetts and co-author of The Nature of New Hampshire
