Quick to read, this book contains a number of brief impressionistic accounts of the unfortunate events that have happened to those climbing in the Chamonix region of Switzerland. The author is a physician who has specialized in mountain rescue work for approx. 20 years. His personal life is inevitably affected by the exigencies of his work. He is quick to credit the people he works with for their daring and commitment. The stories are choppy but I suppose that given the nature of his work, he may not know the patient outcomes in many cases.
