• Frank Smythe: The Six Alpine/Himalayan Climbing Books (Mountaineers $38.00) is the latest in the Mountaineers series that began with the Tilman and Shipton editions. Smythe wrote 27 books; these six, written between 1920 and 1939, include The Kanchenjunga Adventure, Kamet Conquered, and Camp Six-classics all. This whole series provides a terrific service for the historian.
