Of all the mountain guides who came to North America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Conrad Kain is probably the most respected and well known. In this internationally anticipated reissue of [i]Where the Clouds Can Go[/i] - first published in 1935, with subsequent editions in 1954 and 1979 - the original text has been accentuated with an expanded selection of over 50 archival images, highlighting climbs in the diverse mountain landscapes of North America, Europe and New Zealand.The new foreword by acclaimed mountaineer and filmmaker Pat Morrow puts Kain's adventures, explorations and appreciation of nature into a contemporary context, ensuring that the exploits of this remarkable individual remain part of international mountain culture for years to come.[i]Where The Clouds Can Go[/i], the dramatic story of this uncommon man, is a mountaineering classic that shatters the boundaries of the genre." -Bernadette McDonald, author of [i]Tomaz Humar[/i] and past Vice-President of Mountain Culture at The Banff Center and former Director of The Banff Mountain Film and Book Festivals.
