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 a cliff. Sir Arnold Lunn was a skier, mountaineer and writer.

Tales of adventure easily intelligible to the non-climber, the lessons which most adventures can teach to those who may climb themselves one day. The book should be read by all who think of Alpine climbing, and by all who love stories of adventure.
