Review of the hardback: 'It's a delight to read a book by a writer who is tops in the world on his subject. Bob Sharp has studied glaciers at first-hand - camped on them, struggled up and down them and flown over them for forty years. Nobody is better qualified to tell about them. This book is 'required reading' for anyone interested in this fascinating subject.' Bradford Washburn
