" Whether you're an armchair hiker or a seasoned climber, interested only in your state's highest point or all fifty, this book will be an invaluable companion and reference.
Author: Don W. Holmes
The highpoints of the fifty states range from Alaska's 20,320 foot high Mount McKinley to 345 feet at Lakewood Park in Florida. Some highpoints, such as Mount Mitchell in North Carolina and New Hampshire's Mount Washington can be reached by automobile on a sightseeing drive. Others such as Colorado's Mount Elbert or Mount Marcy in New York are accessible as wilderness day hikes. Still others, such as Mount Rainier in Washington or Gannett Peak in Wyoming, are strenuous and risky mountaineering challenges that should be attempted only by experienced climbers. Whatever your level of skill and interest, Highpoints of the United States offers a diverse range of experiences. Arranged alphabetically by state, each listing has a map, photographs, and information on trailhead, main and alternative routes, elevation gain, and conditions. Historical and natural history notes are also included, as are suggestions for specific guidebooks to a region or climb. Appendices include a list of highpoints by region, by elevation, and a personal log for the unashamed "peak-bagger." Whether you're an armchair hiker or a seasoned climber, interested only in your state's highest point or all fifty, this book will be an invaluable companion and reference.

Some people are content to take the most direct route between two points every time. The fact that you are looking at the description for this book likely means that you are not one of them. In contrast, some of us have the desire to wander and seek out the thrill of visiting a place for the very first time. If that describes you, then the Pathfinder U.S. Adventure log might just be the thing for you. The log provides the user with a satisfyingly analog way to systematically track visits to every county, parish, independent city, county-equivalent borough, National Park unit, and state highpoint in the United States along with selected destinations in U.S. territories. Also included is space for extras such as stamps, stickers, notes, photos, or sketches. If you are seeking a convenient way to record yur travel memories that doesn't involve floating information in a cloud, then this book is for you!

John Jancik wanted the 50 for Tibet project to spend a year climbing state highpoints to raise money for The Rowell Fund for Tibet, an organization that provides grants to support Tibetan writers, artists, and musicians living in Tibet and elsewhere. The project reached the highpoints of more than 40 states that first year. Now, eleven years later, the project is alive and well and has extended to international highpoints, raised more than $250,000, and increased awareness of human rights violations in Chinese-occupied Tibet. The 50 for Tibet group experienced planning and dreaming, hope and joy, fear and sadness. Highpointing For Tibet provides a background on the situation in Tibet and takes the reader on a journey across the United States to mountains such as Mount Whitney, Mount Rainier, Granite Peak, Mount Katahdin, and beyond the U.S. borders to Ecuador, Norway, Sweden, Japan, Australia, Spain, and more as Team HighPoint chases adventure in support of The Rowell Fund for Tibet. "This wonderful book tells the story of how a small group of motivated individuals, touched by the beauty of Tibetan culture, can make a big difference to the lives of many," said Matteo Mecacci, President of the International Campaign for Tibet. Gardiner recently retired after teaching high school English and journalism for 38 years. He has published three books about mountain climbing and one about teaching reading. Jancik, who owned a geophysical company for over 26 years, has previously published one book about original geographic exploration and mountain climbing. John Mitchler, editor of the Highpointers Club quarterly magazine A to Z said, "I have watched the development of the 50 for Tibet initiative, and was always eager to publish updates and promote what I believe is one of the most significant cultural causes in the world. Visiting the 50 highpoints has become an attractive vehicle for many charities lately, but none have pursued it with the conviction and success seen by 50 for Tibet. The expansion of their mission to country highpoints around the world has definitely added a unique angle to their story, and proves their deep support for Tibet."

Eric and Matthew were born in Berea, KY in 1986 and started hiking with their Dad in the nearby hills and hollers of Kentucky as soon as they could walk. They started college in the fall of 2004 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Mass, and discovered the MIT Outing Club. They both graduated in 2008 and in 2010 with Bachelor's and Master's degrees. Since fall 2010, they have been at MIT working on mechanical engineering PhDs and squeezing in state highpoints. In February 2012 they finished the final state highpoint - Guadalupe Peak in Texas. They are busy working to finish PhD degrees: Matthew is designing an improved handheld force-controlled ultrasound probe and Eric is working with autonomous kayaks.

This outstanding reference work is the first A-Z, English language compilation on the world's mountains. It contains definitions, explanations, and clarifications in more than 2,300 entries, which vary in length from a brief sentence to detailed overviews of more complex subjects. It includes listings of many specific mountains, but more important, it is replete with geological terminology, birds and animals, flowers and trees, climbers and mountaineers, as well as associated tasks such as logging, mining, skiing, and climbing. The Mountain Encyclopedia is invaluable as a source of data and information, but it is also enjoyable to read straight through.
