Critical Hours: Search and Rescue in the White Mountains
Sandy StottPaper: $24.95
Stott focuses on the heroism of SAR workers and what these incidents can teach us about staying safe in the mountains.
You need this book whether you’re a White Mountains veteran or someone slinging on a pack for the first time. Stott’s wise and urbane writing on the search and rescue culture has us compulsively reading these narratives of (mostly) loss, and of those who rescue us from our own misjudgments. Here’s the last word in staying safe and self-aware in the mountains. Add this book to your ten essentials as required reading!
