Moved By A Mountain
Inspiration from an Alpine View in Alaska
“There's more to climbing mountains than physical and mental acuity.
There's the magical experience of being on the mountain,
seeing the intense beauty of the rarefied mountainscape,
and feeling what it has to teach.
In Moved by a Mountain, Tom Reed’s stunning images and thoughtful text
remind us that we can learn qualities of personal integrity
not only from climbing a majestic mountain,
but from looking at one, if our eyes and hearts are open.”
--David Breashears, mountaineer, filmmaker, speaker

“Like catching moisture laden winds and gathering them into visible clouds,
mountains capture our highest imaginations and reflect our noblest spirit.
They have been the home of Gods and Goddesses, the physical embodiment of
unchanging truth and stability, the very essence of majesty and awe.
Tom Reed’s Moved by a Mountain does more for our personal relationship to mountains
than any book should be expected to do. Sit with these pictures, let them work on your heart and soul, understand more about what mountains might mean for the future of humanity,
and most of all, find yourself in awe.”
--John Davis, Ph.D., Naropa University and School of Lost Borders
