Mountain Rescue in the Scottish Highlands,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cairngorm John: A Life in Mountain Rescue (Non-Fiction) (Hardcover)
John Allen's book tells Mountain Rescue in the Grampian Mountains (aka The Cairngorms) as it is. Harsh, lethal, sad, joyful, inspiring but always truthful. I have lived and worked in these mountains all my life and know how severe weather can be, and when it is a beautiful day in the Strath it can be violent on the high tops. The book is an insight into the bravery of all the Rescue Team in CMRT who venture out in atrocious weather to rescue both well equiped and experienced people and others not so. It is a privilege to know these heroes personally.
