In this collection of seven essays, Reid, a mountaineer for 25 yearsfor 25 years, or he's 25 years old? , aims high: it is the soul of the climber at timberline that holds his interest. Reid believes we can find our way ``home,'' back to our roots, by visiting mountains and wilderness. Blending facts and his emotions,, the author beautifully and passionately describes his experiences on the slopes and the residue from each. In the Tetons, he glimpsed the affinity between love and death. Atop the sacred Navaho peak Tsoodzi, he underwent spiritual reawakening. In the Catskills, mountain became educator. Retracing part of the 1833 trail of ol' Joe Walker's party in the Sierras, Reid discovered the joy of perseverance, which the group found on ``gazing at last on the great blue dream of the Pacific.'' A better guide than Reid would be hard to find. (May)per MS, but May on drop sheet/should have changed date on mss; sorry; may it is
