Ten pickets later, we found ourselves on the roof of North America. Yeeeahhhh! I roared at the top of my lungs. I yelled so loud that I actually knocked the wind out of myself for five minutes. At that moment, we were the highest people standing on solid ground in the continent (excerpt from Denali report). The quest to reach the most expansive vista of each country and explore the most remote parts of the world motivated the Gilbertson twins to be the first to climb the highest mountain in all twenty-three North American countries. From the windswept glaciers of Alaska and the Yukon, to the tropical jungles of Central America, to the razor-grass-covered volcanoes of the Caribbean, Matthew and Eric share the stories and experiences that paved their way through their trip reports and itineraries. They were born and raised in Appalachian Kentucky and later educated at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where they joined its famous Outing Club. In this book, they share how they achieved their quest for the summits with both budget consciousness and strategic efficiencyin just nine trips! This book is for those who share a thirst for travel, the outdoors, and the mountains. It chronicles a subset of the Gilbertson twins overall goal to climb the 195 world country high points. Stay tuned for more books in the Twins to the Tops series coming soon. For more information, visit our website, http://www.countryhighpoints.com/. Advance praise for Twins to the Tops The Gilber-trons strike again! A great resource for mountaineering in North America (Dan Walker, former president, MIT Outing Club). Twins to the Tops is an inspiring read and an effort worthy of a world record (David Rush, 50+ time Guinness World Record breaker). Those boys never stop walking. I reckon these old Kentucky hills was a good place to start (Tony Smith, Appalachian author of These Old Hills).

Luis de Morales, known as El Divino because of his intensely religious subject matter, is the most significant and recognisable Spanish painter of the mid-sixteenth century, the high point of the Spanish and Portuguese counter-reformations. He spent almost his entire working life in the Spanish city of Badajoz, not far from the border with Portugal, and did not travel outside of a small area around that city, straddling the border. The social, political and cultural environment of Badajoz and its environs is crucial for a thorough understanding of Morales’s output, and this book provides context in detail – considering literature and liturgical theatre, the situation of converted Jews and Muslims, the presence of Erasmianism, Lutheranism and Illuminism (Alumbradismo), devotional writing for lay people, and proximity to the Bragança ducal palace in Portugal as a means of explaining this most enigmatic of painters.
