Mountain Harmonies

  Mountain Harmonies
Howard L. Smith
192 pages, hardcover, $23.95.
University of New Mexico Press, 2004.

In Mountain Harmonies, Howard Smith offers more than musings on environmental philosophy: He crafts a useful guidebook of sorts that takes readers from Glacier National Park to New Mexico’s Gila Wilderness. Whether you travel a thousand miles or two blocks on your own journey, what’s important, Smith maintains, is simply the experience of being outdoors.
