Happy Friday and congratulations to the Mountaineers Books, the publishing arm of the Mountaineers in the Pacific Northwest. It turns 50 this year!
This publisher is the best provider of english langauge print information on mountaineering knowledge and general outdoors skills. This article in the Seattle Times reports on their celebration and that the organization is in good financial shape so it will continue to provide the information we need (and crave!) for some time to come.
