The result of a unique collaboration between Killion and Snyder, both lifelong lovers of the High Sierras. Here, Killion uses traditional Japanese and European woodcut techniques, working from sketches made on mountaineering trips over a period of thirty years from Yosemite south to the Whitney and Kaweah crests. Complemented with poems and excerpts from the journals of Snyder, which chronicle more than 40 years of foot travel through the Sierras.
