Title:Great Days in New Zealand Mountaining - The Rock and the Snow
Published by A H & A W Reed, Wellington, 1958, 199 pages, with a foreword by Sir Edmund Hillary. This book with take its place in New Zealand writing as a series of tales of action to be read by the layman who welcomes a minimum of technicality. Yet even experience mountaineers will find something new in each chapter, evoking memories of fascinating places and interesting climbers in situations where skill and courage were the key to success or survival. John Pascoe has drawn from his unique collection of mountain records for these accounts based on authentic and, in some cases, hitherto unpublished manuscripts. Clear sketch maps and striking photographs add strength to vigorous narratives.
