Reviews Mountain magazine - While many mountaineering works have elements of this book in them, none that I have read come close to covering the subject so completely and concisely. Rock & Ice magazine - Many climbers have never experienced the terror of plunging into a lurking, black void beneath the sparkling snows. Those who do ... should pray both they and their partner have read and memorized every page of Glacier Travel and Crevasse Rescue. Climbing magazine - Andy Selters packs in more solid information on this subject than you can find in any other instructional handbook ... No matter what your level of alpine expertise, get a copy of Glacier Travel and Crevasse Rescue before setting foot on the glacier. Author: Andy Selters
