Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
Imagine looking up at a sheer rock face several hundred yards tall. You hang suspended by a sturdy climbing rope. You ponder where to place your next metal clip as you attempt to move up the rock face. The sun is shining and, as you pause to catch your breath, you can see for miles. This type of experience is described in brief in this illustrated introduction to the sport of rock climbing. Readers of this concise book are provided with a multitude of tips about rock climbing covering topics such as safety, technique, equipment, fitness, and the history of mountaineering. Throughout the presentation, the combination of colorful illustrations with sparse but clear text offers a reasonable introduction to youngsters interested in rock climbing. In addition, the author provides references for more in-depth study of this sport. This is a book that will appeal to readers with any interest in outdoor sports and recreational activities. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
