The mountains of the Pacific Northwest are legendary among mountaineers and hikers worldwide, just as the mountain rescue groups who serve the Pacific Northwest have become legendary over the last 50 years.
Dee Molenaar has written an eloquent history of mountain rescue groups in Washington and Oregon and the establishment of the Mountain Rescue Association at Mt. Hood in 1959, an anniversary this book celebrates.
