Of Men and Mountains: The Classic Memoir of Wilderness Adventure
"Of Men and Mountains" is a book of personal adventure and discovery -- an account of the way Douglas and other men managed to find a richer life in the mountains, and how they found something else besides. Its pages are filled with the stories of the sheep-herders, Native Americans, fishermen, and foresters who learned to survive in the wilderness, to enjoy it, and to learn the secret of the true serenity of the spirit.
In such country, Douglas noted, "man can find deep solitude; and under conditions of grandeur that are startling, he can come to know both himself and God."
