Denali: A Literary Anthology, edited by Bill Sherwonit (Mountaineers Books, $18.95), is a new volume that collects a variety of literary works. Although the mountaineering accounts collected here will be familiar to most readers of this journal, the “Native Sacred Stories” and natural history sections make a valuable contribution. A great book for readers new to the area. Sherwonit’s To the Top of Denali: Climbing Adventures on North America ’s Highest Peak (Alaska Northwest Books, $14.95) has been reissued in a tenth anniversary edition. Sherwonit has added salient chapters on the tragedies of the 1992 season and guiding on the mountain to an already indispensable history of climbing on Denali.
