Detailed Product Description
New York, 1958, 1st US edition, 2nd printing. 254 pp. Navy cloth hardcover, no dust jacket, Ex Lib. VG condition.

On January 11, 1954, an avalanche hit the small alpine village of Blons in the West Austrian Alpine region. While the rescuers were desperately searching for survivors and bodies after the avalanche, a more powerful one hit the town, obliterating houses, and, causing either the death or maiming of every sixth resident of the town. "This is the actual story of the people of Blons - before, during and after the avalanche, a story of fear and courage, of greed and of kindness, of petty envy and of greatness." - from the dust jacket. Jacket art by Arthur Hawkins.
