Mountains are one of my favourite natural settings to find on book covers. They’re so majestic and breathtaking!
I spent part of my childhood living right next to a large mountain range, so they also bring up happy memories from those years.
There’s nothing like being nestled right next to the mountains. You get so much snow in the winter, and the summers are nice and mild as well.
Here are ten beautiful covers that include mountains on them.
This list turned out to have more North American mountains on it than I was originally intending to include. If you know of beautiful book covers about mountain ranges in other parts of the world, I’d love to hear about them.
1. The Mountains That Remade America: How Sierra Nevada Geology Impacts Modern Life
by Craig H Jones
2. The Eight Mountains by Paolo Cognetti
3. Everest: Mountain without Mercy by Broughton Coburn
4. Annapurna: The First Conquest of an 8,000-Meter Peak by Maurice Herzog
5. Uluru: Australia’s Aboriginal Heart by Caroline Arnold
6. Walking in the Caucasus – Georgia by Peter Nasmyth
7. Adirondacks: Views of An American Wilderness by Carl E. Heilman II
8. If Mountains Die: A New Mexico Memoir by John Nichols\
9. Hannibal’s March: Alps and Elephants by Gavin de Beer
10. The Sound of Mountain Water by Wallace Stegner

Great list! Growing up next to a mountain sounds idyllic.
Thank you. Yeah, it’s pretty amazing to grow up that way for sure.
Great list. Same as you also love trees, I also love mountains but I didn’t see them growing up, so I don’t have such a personal link to them. Actually, I never lived close to any mountains. Maybe that’s why I chose trees, they bring back so many nice memories for me.
Thanks for visiting my TTT earlier.
Oh yes, and I also read “The Eight Mountains”. Loved it.
You’re welcome. I’m glad you loved “The Eight Mountains.”
This is a lovely take on the TTT this week — maybe, majestic is a better word! Visiting Uluru is n my list of places to visit in Australia.
Thank you! Hope you’ll get to see Uluru someday.
I grew up on flat land, and I always wanted to live in the mountains. Thanks for sharing these beautiful covers with mountains.
You’re welcome. Have you ever visited mountains? If not, I hope you’ll get to someday.
These are gorgeous! I especially love the Adirondacks one with the fall leaves in the foreground and the body of water in the background.
Thank you! So glad you liked that one.
Ooo, I don’t think I’ve seen people solely talk about mountains on their TTT post yet!
I seem to be the only one so far. I love mountains! 🙂
I love that you themed your list around a particular feature in nature! This list makes me want to go on a hike lol.
Thank you. If you live near mountains, I hope your hike will be in view of them.
Such a pretty take on the topic!
Great take on today’s topic. These are gorgeous!
Thank you very much!
Oh, I like how you went for one thing, mountains, love it!
Thank you. Aren’t mountains the best? 🙂
All of these are beautiful. Such gorgeous places!
Ooh, fun scenery to pick for this week! I love mountains. Thanks for visiting my Top 10 on Lisa Loves Literature earlier!
You’re welcome. I’m glad you love mountains.
I love mountains too!!
Great theme this week! Mountains are lovely to live by, and the covers you chose really show off the variety of mountain types.
My TTT: https://bookwyrmknits.com/2021/05/11/top-ten-tuesday-nature-covers/
Thanks a lot. I appreciate that.
What beautiful covers! Mountains are some gorgeous scenery–I think I’m partial to the Hannibal’s March one simply because I’ve spent a lot of time studying Hannibal and enjoy most things to do with him, haha! This makes me want to go visit some mountainous regions (rather than simply view them from far away, haha).
You must have learned so many interesting things by studying Hannibal.
I hope you get to go visit some mountains soon.
What a wonderful set, chosen by theme! I am just hoping these all have gorgeous photography inside too.
Thank you! I’d bet they do, too.
These are all beautiful! And seeing them makes me itch to start traveling again! I have a short visit to Yosemite planned for late summer — can’t wait to see Half Dome in person again.
Thank you! I hope you have a wonderful time in Yosemite. Isn’t it the best?
I love these covers because I love pictures with mountains. Or the real thing. I’m lucky to be able to see Mt. Rainier almost every day.
You’re quite lucky indeed! Yeah, mountains are amazing.
What a cool take on this week’s topic!
Great Theme! I loved seeing all the mountains.
I love that you picked a theme. Mountains are always beautiful.
Thank you. And agreed. Mountains are amazing.
Way to narrow down your theme and make it a cool challenge! I live in the Shenandoah Valley of VA so we’re always surrounded by mountains. I think the prettiest one on your list is the ‘Annapurna’ one.
Thank you! I’ve heard that the Shenandoah Valley is gorgeous.
These are all beautiful but I find The Eight Mountains particularly striking!
What a great idea! I love that you found such a variety of mountains, rather than all one (like Everest). I live in western Canada, so we’ve got lots of forested mountains here. But I’ve always wanted to see Uluru!
Thank you very much!
Western Canada is gorgeous. I lived out there for a little while.
Hope you get to see Uluru someday.
I like your take on today’s topic, these mountains are all very beautiful!
These make me want to go camping or on a road trip!
Yay! I hope that’s in the future for you soon.
Oooh, I like that you focused on book with mountains. That’s a cool theme for this week!
Thank you very much!
Such a great list! Mountains are nature’s most majestic creation in my opinion!
Thanks. And totally agreed there.
These covers make me immediately want to visit these places. Great picks!
Yay, I’m glad! And thanks.
I really like the cover of Annapurna: The First Conquest of an 8,000-Meter Peak by Maurice Herzog. Mountains are so majestic.
Thanks for visiting my TTT list this week, Lydia. 🙂
And I’m glad you liked that cover. Yes, mountains are definitely majestic.
Wow, these are such beautiful book covers!
We have that Everest book too 🙂
Love that you have included Uluru on your list! I do agree, mountains are such spectacular scenery to look at
Thanks! Have you ever been to Uluru?
Wow! I love the selection of books you featured, it makes me miss traveling. I wish I can visit more places with mountains and the feel of countryside.
Thank you. I hope travel will be safe and possible again for you and everyone else soon.
Annapurna looks great, and uluru would be fascinating to more about.
I know, right? 🙂
love your take/theme on nature covers.. reading this list reminded me of a few books as well.. I know many of these mountains are on my bucket list ..
Books With Nature etc on the Cover
I hope you get to see all of the mountains on your bucket list.
I’ve done covers with water themes and flowers, but had never thought of mountains!]
I visited Uluru a month or so ago. Such an amazing place.
Thanks for stopping by my TTT!
It’s wonderful that you were able to visit Uluru recently. Wow, that must have been incredible.
Love how different your post is!!! i love seeing these covers.
I love this! I grew up in the shadow of Mt. Hood. It was fun to see it in all its glory outside my window every day. Mountains (which we don’t really have here in the Phoenix area – we just have big rocks that don’t seem to qualify) are nostalgic for me as well.
Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!
Wow, it must have been neat to grow up next to Mt. Hood.
And, yeah, I have family who lives in that part of Arizona. Your big rocks there are quite pretty!
Uluru – I might have to look into that! Thanks for sharing!
I hope you like it!
I like your take on the nature topic! Mountains really are majestic.
Mountains are so awesome. I especially like the Walking in the Caucasus one.
I’m glad you think so! 🙂
I’ve been to this place four times, for organised events. It obviously was put on hold due to covid, but I’m not sure they will ever bring it back 🙁
The book is delicious though, and fits the theme!
That’s so cool! I hope they will start holding events there after this pandemic ends.
And that looks like a very good read.
Great picks! I do love mountains on covers.
Thank you! Aren’t they great? 🙂
My hometown is a province and in the Philippines, province means farms, fields and mountains. 🙂 this is a great list Lydia. 🙂
Oh, that’s so cool!
And thank you.
Great list! I love Walking in the Caucasus’ cover, so stunning.
