About this book

Both personal narrative and topical guide, The Alps presents an ambitious synthesis of the entire Alpine region. The broad scope of the book encompasses the region's geography, geology, climate, its snow and glaciers, flora and fauna, ethnic groups, dialects, pastoral life and festivals, home life and folk arts, legends, fiction, visual arts, music and dancing, warfare, summit climbing, trekking, ski touring, and what the authors call psychological ecology.
