4.0 out of 5 stars
An excellent book in bitesize chunks., 21 Mar. 2001
"Killing Dragons" by Fergus Fleming is an excellent book for climbers, travellers and historians. It charts the exploration of the alps since records first began and is well researched and written. The author brings alive the climbers written about by adding in little bits of information which make them interesting. It also includes a very concise and useful bibliography in case you are interested in researching or just reading a bit more about the subject of mountaineering.
