An adventure across a thousand miles of Scotland's mountains. In this personal guide to the triumphs, hardships and perils of scaling the Munros, Landsberg brings the joys and pitfalls of hill-climbing to life. Landsberg's adventures are presented in vivid detail, with insights ranging from encompassing the wonder of unique experiences like seeing the birth of a deer to the mundane delight of the flavour of sandwich he had on a given day. Throughout his account, Landsberg provides an in-depth insight into his growing obsession with climbing the Munroes and its effect on his physical, emotional and spiritual development. With insights on the history, culture, ecology and geology of Scotland's mountains and guides to Gaelic place names, mountain safety and an analysis the science of walking, this book provides a complete guide for anyone looking for adventure in the Highlands, and is sure to inspire anyone who reads it to go climb a rock! Excerpt: One day I walked into these mountains, and I never came all the way back. For though Scotland's mountains may not be the highest in the world, they are certainly amongst the most awe-inspiring and enchanting. From the towering pinnacles of Skye, to the high rolling plateau of the Cairngorms; from the bonnie braes of Ben Lomond to the weeping cliffs of Glencoe; from the rocky battlements that encircle Loch Arkaig, to the gentle folds of Ben Lawers as it spills down to Loch Tay: here are offered scenes of unrivalled splendour, landscapes of unparalleled variety, and a magic ground for personal connection, inspiration, and transformation. These are places of accessible adventure - we leave behind the safety of the lush glen to cross the swooping moor, clamber up through craggy corridors, and with silver chuckling burn then spatey cascade as our sometime guide we reach at last the grand summits of these lands. Here beneath a hundred rainbows lie a hundred pots of gold - unclaimed scenic ingots that are yours for the taking and to which I hope to lead you, on a journey for body, for mind, and perhaps for something deeper.

Humanity's footsteps. There is the cave where the slumbering ice god Hides from
the gaze of the wandering stranger, Shut in the depths of the mountain's recesses

Spending his life savings on a remote piece of land in Canada, the author confronts hungry bears, giant moose and extreme isolation. Alone in the forested mountains of Cape Breton, Sam attempts to build a wilderness cabin before the deadly cold of winter freezes the land. Call of the Mountain is a magnificent ode to the natural world, a thrilling story of resilience and a journey of a man searching for meaning. Sam writes beautifully about the struggles of the road less travelled and how we are all shaped by our aspirations and dreams. If you enjoyed Into the Wild, you will love this book! Excerpt from Chapter 7 "This was different. I was not camping for a night or two. This was my home. This was my kitchen, dining room and living room. My whole living zone had crumbs and faint traces of food everywhere. The last months of living, outdoor cooking, dishes and compost had created a buffet of smells that were going to be irresistible to Bobo. Also, he had already eaten my butter and eggs and would associate my camp with lip-smacking treats. I needed all the fuel I could eat to continue the hard physical work to build my home. Between cutting wood, building, hauling water, cooking, cleaning, and getting supplies I could not afford to pack up my whole kitchen and food three times a day. Good warm food was also the highlight of my long days. I cooked a meagre supper as night fell and the reaper held dominion over the valley. A large branch snapped out in the darkness. The entrails of clouds had cleared and a scarlet crescent moon hung over the western valley. I threw a rope over a branch of a maple and hoisted a pillowcase of dry goods and my food bucket high into the night sky. I washed my whole cooking area down with hot soapy water. I heard noises in the dark and knew Bobo was out there somewhere. I began preparing to defend myself and my home. I sharpened my long spear of rock maple and practiced throwing it a dozen times. I placed five solid heavy rounds of golden firewood, that I could grasp firmly with my hand, inside my half repaired tent. I put five more outside the door. This was going to be a very primitive defence. I was preparing for a battle I knew was coming."

Although Southern California's mountain ranges are only partially wilderness, they bring wonder into our daily lives even from a distance. I wrote this book to remind us of this wonder, to champion the mountains' beauty and inspire their protection. In addition, I wrote this book for people around the world to know a seldom heralded dimension of Southern California. Several years ago I couldn't find such a book to show Swiss friends. Also I've always wanted to show our mountains' beauty to friends and relatives across the country, to come and visit them vicariously. Call of the Mountains is for you who can't get to the mountains, but glimpse them from afar and feel their wonder. Last, I wrote this book for you who already know these streams, canyons and peaks. For you, the following pages will jog memories of special places and occasions that are yours alone. My Story -- and the stories of people I met - takes us along trails to historic areas, sparkling waterfalls, pristine meadows and the highest peaks.
