The Leporello Book: The Mountain – from Dale to Mountain Top

The concertina poster accompanying the book shows you what it’s all about: A mountain in the Alps, rising from a densely-populated valley to the realm of eternal ice, about 4000 m above sea level. The book explains about nature and the areas cultivated by man. Once you’ve read it you’ll discover many things on the poster you had overlooked first time round.

All the things you can see on the poster are explained in the copiously illustrated book: From the railway tunnel in the valley to the funicular above the alpine pastures, from the timberline to the glaciers and the steep cliffs. It tells about the huge forces that piled up and moulded the mountain ranges millions of years ago, about how animals and plants adapted themselves to the extreme climatic conditions in the high mountain areas, and how man transformed part of these areas by cultivation. The book does not neglect to point to the threat that traffic in the valleys and winter sports on the slopes pose to the sensitive ecosystem in the Alps.
