Synopsis

This is the Mountain by Miriam Moss

A celebration of Mt Kilimanjaro in East Africa and the significance it has on the wildlife that lives within its shadow, on its slopes and high on its peak. Written in beautifully crafted poetic prose, this is the perfect introduction to a rich and varied mountain wilderness. Moss's expertly crafted text builds a wonderfully accurate portrayal of life on the African mountain. Kennaway's illustrations brilliantly depict the wildlife that depends on the mountain for food and shelter. A visual extravaganza brought to you by the author/illustrator team who produced This is the Tree, This is the Oasis and This is the Reef. An information spread at the end of the book provides more detailed background and the book has been checked by a natural history expert.
