Detailed Product Description

Colorado, 2001, 1st edition. 288 pp, 50 b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine. 

Seven studies of high altitude medical research in Colorado. Climbers and doctors will welcome these new findings.

John T Reeves and Robert F Grover have gathered together seven episodes narrating the exploits of innovative researchers that led to some extraordinary medical findings, altering the course of medicine in Colorado and throughout the world. From the summit of Pikes Peak to the mountains of Leadville and South Park, from the Maroon Bells above Aspen to the beauty of south-western Colorado, each episode is written by experts close to the original experiments.

Descendants, medical colleagues, and those who have subsequently taken up the torch of research all provide unique insight into the history of science above the timberline. Perfect for health care professionals interested in the history of research on the human body's response to exposure at higher altitudes, this book will intrigue mountain climbers, doctors, scientists, residents of Colorado, and medical historians.
