Le Ski, by Philippe Gaussot. 64 pages, 64 illustrations. Paris: Editions de Varenne, 1951.

In this unpretentious book one finds much that is interesting about the development and methods of the French school of skiing. The pictures are exciting. One is amused by the costumes of the early lady skiers and by the prehistoric Scandinavian views. There is a useful glossary.
