Great book to "learn the ropes",
This review is from: The Illustrated Guide to Glacier Travel and Crevasse Rescue (Paperback)
This was a great book, short, concise and extremely descriptive. A lot of the descriptions for a knot or setup of a pulley system is covered in Freedom of the Hills and other books. But in any other book, you will be disappointed to only find a description, leaving the reader wondering...hmm..Now where would I use this? In the Illustrated Guide, not only do they provide great drawings and demonstrations for everything mentioned, but they also talk about when, and why. After reading this book I have felt so much more confidence in my level of knowledge about glacier travel. It's the perfect book for those wishing to learn or to teach others.
