Legendary climber Dick Culbert mountaineering accomplishments are well known. But few people know that he was an accomplished poet, writing mainly on mountain themes. The Coast Mountains Trilogy collects all the mountaineering poems Dick wrote between 1957 and 1971, many never before published.
The book is illustrated by drawings from the same period by mountaineer Arnold Shives, who accompanied Dick on many trips. An Introduction by Glenn Woodsworth puts the poems in their historical context.
