Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This collection of reports submitted by those involved describe a variety of accidents on rock, snow and ice includes analyses by the safety committees of The American Alpine Club and the Alpine Club of Canada that determine the reasons for the accident, whether human, equipment-related, or as a result of unexpected weather conditions. In the tradition established since 1946, the clubs also note themes and trends in accidents, such as a lingering avalanche season in Canada and a tendency to rappel off the end of the rope in the US. The result is a good learning tool for enthusiasts and a valuable series of warnings for novices. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
