Image from end paper

In 1893 Henrik Angell traveled to Montenegro. He was going through the country on skis, into Albania and Turkey. Besides spreading the pleasures of skiing, the goal of the trip was to learn more about the country's history, culture and way of life. Angell was also interested in the country's defense. As a militarist he was impressed with how Montenegro had managed to remain independent. In the book's preface, he writes "such people should and would I see".

Wikipedia:
Henrik August Angell (22 August 1861 26 January 1922) was a Norwegian military officer, sportsman, and writer. He was a ski pioneer and the first Norwegian delegate to the International Olympic Committee.
