Illustrated Atlas of the Himalaya
Illustrated Atlas of the Himalaya by David Zurick
Book DescriptionThe Himalaya inspire the notion of Shangri-la and are world renowned for their exquisite mountain scenery and the ancient cultures that tenaciously inhabit this harsh and sublime landscape. Home to all fourteen of the world's highest peaks, including Mount Everest, and some of its deepest gorges, the region is a trove of biological and cultural diversity. A sweeping overview of the geography, economics, politics, and culture of this spectacular region, the ""Illustrated Atlas of the Himalaya"" is the first full-color, comprehensive atlas of contemporary land and life in the Earth's highest mountains. Drawing from the authors' twenty-five years of scholarship and personal experience in the region, the volume contains a stunning and unique collection of informative maps based on state-of-the-art cartography, exquisite photography, and compelling text to give accurate coverage of the Himalaya. The entire 2,700-kilometer length of the range is covered, from the Indus Valley in northern Pakistan and India, across Nepal and Bhutan, to the hidden realms of northeast India. With over three hundred artfully produced four-color maps and photographs, the ""Illustrated Atlas of the Himalaya"" is an indispensable reference and a superb collector's volume for anyone interested in the vast mountain panorama that is the Himalaya.
