3rd Impression. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “To convey the spirit of the great mountains without losing the value of the details of the flowers is a very difficult task. Dr. Vareschi has attempted this successfully. Climbing mountains is an experience and he manages to convey this experience, both the practical side and the spiritual side, in terms which are moving without being sentimental. There has been no other contribution to the literature of mountains.”
