A Climber’s Guide to the Interior Ranges of British Columbia, by J. Monroe Thorington. Third edition, 12mo, xii + 225 pages. New York: American Alpine Club, 1955. Price, $3.00 ($2.25 to members).
The new edition of this guidebook anticipates the 1955 camp of the Alpine Club of Canada at Glacier, B. C. It is necessitated by exhaustion of earlier printings and by extensive revisions created from recent cartography and exploration. For the Selkirks, the groups from Sir Sandford northward have been entirely rewritten, as is also the case in the Purcells between the Dogtooths and the Bugaboos. Knowledge of the Cariboo and Monashee peaks has been amplified, and the book throughout contains many new peaks and route descriptions, making it of immense practical value.
