Using examples chosen from a variety of geographical settings and scales, A. J. Gerrard presents a novel approach to the study of mountain environments. He provides a framework in which mountains as special environments can be studied and shows how, no matter what their location or origin all mountain regions share common characteristics and undergo similar shaping processes. Gerrard's integrated approach combines ecological, climatological, hydrological, volcanic, and environmental management concerns in a systematic treatment of mountain geomorphology. He begins by examining the special nature of mountains, including a new classification of mountain types. He discusses mountain ecosystems, stressing the interaction between biota, soil, climate, relief, and geology, examines the high-energy systems of weathering and mass movement, and analyzes the role of rivers and hydrology and the processes of slope evolution. Two chapters are devoted to the particular characteristics of glaciation and vulcanism in mountain formation. The book concludes with a discussion of the special problems that human use of mountain regions create, including engineering, natural hazards, soil erosion, and the concept of integrated development.
Silence No More
A down-on-his-luck bush pilot finds gold in the jungles of Venezuela. September 1971 finds the pilot, Jack Weston, flying smokejumpers in the mountains of Canada. The crashing of his plane leads to some soul searching, and he debates on what to do with his life. He leaves Canada broke and down on his luck. Jack receives word from an old friend of a crop dusting job in Venezuela. While hitching a ride on a southbound freight ship to get there, he witnesses a murder, a shark attack, and more. He escapes in a leaking wooden lifeboat and is soon looking into the jaws of death again. Jack reaches Venezuela and begins to fly again. Soon, his crippled floatplane is swept over a 1600-foot jungle waterfall where he finds a ton of buried gold coins, hidden by pirates two hundred years ago. Getting the gold out of such a remote location proves to be a daunting task, riddled with bloodthirsty banditos and foul play. With the help of Layla, a stunningly beautiful Venezuelan woman he is attracted to, and his rowdy outspoken pilot-friend Austin Riley, they get involved in an all-night operation involving gunfire, low fuel, and a sizzling lightning-packed thunderstorm.
