Mountaineers announce North Cascades book project

Take a look at this recent blog post by The Mountaineers about their new North Cascades book project, at: http://mntrs.blogspot.com/2010/07/mountaineers-north-cascades-book.html


N3C urges you to donate to this very worthy cause! It could make all the difference when the time comes to reach our elected officials, who will be the ones to sign any legislation expanding North Cascades National Park, of course!
Beautiful coffee table photographic books published by Mountaineers Books have been held up on the Senate floor, hand delivered to U.S. Presidents during legislative debates, and played an integral role in galvanizing people to become engaged in public policy debates.
It's important to understand the economic reality behind this sort of project, as summarized in their post:
While gorgeous works of art and important advocacy tools books like these are rarely money makers. With this in mind The Mountaineers is leading a donation drive to raise money to produce this book on the North Cascades. Contributions to this campaign help us doubly to reach our goal since every dollar donated up to $25,000 is generously matched by The Mountaineers. Please make checks out to Braided River- and be sure to put North Cascades Advocacy Book in the memo of your check. Publication will be in 2011 or 2012.
