Herden Glocken, by Jürg Klages. 4to; text and 78 pages of photos by the author. Zürich: Rotapfel Verlag, 1952. Price Sw. Fr. 19.50.

The author, with rucksack and camera, has crossed his mountain homeland of northeastern Switzerland, recording the seasonal changes of the alpland and the life of the herds. New-born lambs, peaceful cattle, galloping horses, hidden flowers, and towering peaks are among the subjects. The horse-alps have vanished, save at Suren, upper Engadine, and Alp Funtauna, below Piz Kesch. One must see these pictures to believe it.
