The Mountain that was 'God'
by John H. Williams
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's sons 1911
Number of pages: 95
This little book is about the great peak which the Indians named 'Tacoma' but which is officially called 'Rainier.' It aims to show the grandest and most accessible of our extinct volcanoes from all points of view. Like the glacial rivers, its text will be found a narrow stream flowing swiftly amidst great mountain scenery. Its abundant illustrations cover not only the giants' fairyland south of the peak, but also the equally stupendous scenes that await the adventurer who penetrates the harder trails and climbs the greater glaciers of the north and east slopes.

The author recorded his adventures on the mountains of the world. There is nothing to compare with the grandeur of the mountains, and the feeling that envelopes you when the world opens up and one can see for hundreds of miles in all directions.
