Glarnerland, by Hans Trümpy. 135 pages, 80 full-page photographic illustrations by Walter Läubli. Glarus: Verlag Tschudi. Price, $6.25.

The Canton of Glarus, known for its splendid peak, the Tödi, lies east of the St. Gotthard road. Its main valley, the basin of the Linth, is cut off from the other cantons by high ranges. Although accessible from Zürich by way of the west end of the Lake of Wallenstadt, it is nevertheless unfamiliar to many climbers. The present volume presents the beauty of the canton in pictures, with adequate text. The arrangement of photographs in sections, with all titles at the back of the book, makes it somewhat difficult to find out what is what.
