Expedition to Mystery Mountain
Adventures of a Bushwhacking, Knickerbocker-wearing Woman
What’s it like to be an intrepid explorer . . . and a woman?
Expedition to Mystery Mountain is a come-along adventure of a city-dwelling woman who, with five fellow climbers, re-enacts the route first explored by Don and Phyllis Munday in 1926, to Mount Waddington, the highest peak of British Columbia’s Coast Mountains. Outfitted with vintage hobnail boots, fifty-pound wood-frame packs, and only antique ice axes for safety, the one woman on the team feels the larger-than-life legacy left by Phyllis. She wonders if she can be as fearless and as tough as Phyllis in the unrelenting wilderness.
Illustrated with photographs from the Mundays’ original voyage and its modern re-enactment, Expedition to Mystery Mountain is a visual feast that will take you back in time.
