expressed in a stunning collection of black and white photographs.
Nominated "Best Book," Pacific NW Booksellers; Silver Medal, International Association of Print House Craftsmen
"Alone Around the Mountain not only tells the story of Milkie's relationship
with "the mountain," but reaches back a generation to his photographer
father's own lifelong connection to Rainier....a poignant meditation on
family relationships, the calling of the artist and the revelation of the
Divine in the beauty of nature."
--Right Reverend Hunt Priest, Seattle
I have grown to know a place by walking over it in each of its seasons... It
moved me, and it helped me rediscover a part of myself I nearly lost.
I hope others are able to see themselves standing where these pictures
were taken—that they use these images as a trail up and out. Every one
should experience a place that for them is ‘sacred ground’.
A place where you can find more than you view.
--from the Introduction, "Alone Around the Mountain"
"Words fail to do this book justice.
Every photo goes straight from the heart to the page!"
--Virginia Coe, Educator, San Francisco
"I think this is one of the most carefully crafted, subtle, moving
and inspiring books I've seen in 25 years of book sellling."
--Roger Page, Island Books
