THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN

Sphere Science Fiction paperback, 1971. Artist uncredited.

"A ship is becalmed; hunger and thirst drive the crew mad; like the wrath of God a cyclone destroys the galleon, leaving only two survivors. 
A man and a boy are cast up on a weird, godless shore. No life exists there beyond a jungle of dreadful, flesh-eating plants. Desperately the two survivors trek through the jungle towards a great, fiery range of mountains. 
There, on the slopes of a burning, pulsating crag, they meet their destiny..."
