    I highly recommend reading these books each season. This edition seemed to be a little on the lite side, compared to last year's. The trip reports were too often brief. It also didn't capture the avalanche events that were so frequent at the Snoqualime pass last year. I highly recommend reading these books each season.

    Previous reviewer gave 3/5 because he found it ghoulish to give 4 stars. I hold no such reservations, these are valuable insights and reminders of what goes wrong on mountains.

    Three stars. It's very interesting and informative, but it seems ghoulish to give a book about the factual accounts of climbing accidents four stars. Three stars.
