"The photographs are sumptuous, inspirational, unique... the result of an obsessional effort to be in the right place at the right time. The historical research meticulous, the drawings beautiful and the texts capture the essential character of each route. Find a copy, feast your imagination, be in-spired..."; Victor Saunders, author, mountaineer & IFMGA mountain guide; ; ; "Tibbetts has produced a book that I find deeply impressive and inspiring. Bringing together route descriptions, historic content and the story of Tibbetts's own journey... I find myself dreaming of climbing all these peaks..."; Kenton Cool, 13 times Everest summiteer, IFMGA mountain guide; ; ; "Alpenglow is a rare tome of climbing routes that have all been climbed by the author. Tibbetts's first-hand experience on each of the highest summits of the Alps adds depth and insight, but it is undoubtedly the dazzling alpine photography that sets this book apart from others."; Colin Haley, mountaineer
