The Mountain that was 'God'
by

Publisher: G.P. Putnam's sons
ISBN/ASIN: B00085YUNA
Number of pages: 95

Description:
This little book is about the great peak which the Indians named 'Tacoma' but which is officially called 'Rainier.' It aims to show the grandest and most accessible of our extinct volcanoes from all points of view. Like the glacial rivers, its text will be found a narrow stream flowing swiftly amidst great mountain scenery. Its abundant illustrations cover not only the giants' fairyland south of the peak, but also the equally stupendous scenes that await the adventurer who penetrates the harder trails and climbs the greater glaciers of the north and east slopes.
