A Perilous Paradise
32 pages. Pocket Portfolio
Part of the Wish You Were Here Pocket Portfolio Series, A Perilous Paradise takes you on a journey throughout the years of Mount Rainier. Along with beautiful landscape photos and descriptive text, there is much to be learned from this series.
Where else do they speak of THE Mountain? No matter what we call it- Tahoma, Tacobud, Tacobet, Tacoma, Mount Rainier- there is no mistaking which one is The Mountain. It stands menacingly beautiful above all others in its realm. To some, it could be a god. Maybe so- it makes its own weather. Its shining crown provides a constant source of water for local streams and wraps it in an emerald cloak of old-growth forest. Most of the time it is benevolent, beautiful provider of food for the soul. But occasionally, it unleashes awesome power beyond our imaginings and reminds us that living with a god demands respect and vigilance, lest we be swallowed up in one of its geologic tantrums.
