Large book cover: The Alps

The Alps
by

Publisher: Williams and Norgate
Number of pages: 274

Description:
Alpine exploration is mental as well as physical, and concerns itself with the adventures of the mind in touch with the mountains as well as with the adventures of the body in contact with an unclimbed cliff. The story of the gradual discovery of high places as sources of inspiration has its place in the history of Alpine exploration, as well as the record of variation routes too often expressed in language of unvarying monotony. Sir Arnold Lunn was a skier, mountaineer and writer. He was knighted for 'services to British Skiing and Anglo-Swiss relations' in 1952.
