Detailed Product Description
London, J.M. Dent, 1946, 1st edition. 194 pp, 32 b/w plates. Hardcover with no dust jacket and dent to upper back corner. Near Fine condition.  

An account of climbing holidays in the Alps and the Cairngorms. The author began her climbing career aged eight in the Highlands in 1914 and went on many expeditions there and in the European Alps before WWII. These were "..not to establish records, but to enjoy ourselves," she says.
 
"This book is not a record of startling first ascents. Its interest lies in its valuation of all the factors that make up mountaineering; the huts, the food, the strength and weakness of the party, the weather, the psychology, other people's doings which form such a large part of Alpine amusement, the comments and stories of guides and tourists, the successes and the failures." Neate calls this 'a minor classic'. [Neate S102.]
