"Excellent Alpine mountaineering history. The author was herself a climber of note, and covers the whole subject of mountaineering in its European context. An authoritative account which lets the reader grasp the fascination of the high mountains." [Neate E18.] 
 
A completely revised and enlarged version of Engel's History of Mountaineering in the Alps (1950). All the important personalities of the two centuries of alpineering appear in this story, which has been revised and rewritten to take account of changes and developments which had occurred in the twenty years since the author's first history of mountaineering in the Alps.
