Mike and Andy have both collectively spent years teaching and traveling on glaciers throughout the world. I found this more useful than "Freedom of the Hills" or the other "Glacier Travel and Crevasse Rescue" book from the Mountaineers. If you had to pick one book, go with this one, but if it's your first time on a glacier I'd recommend reading all the material you can or even taking a class. 2 people found this helpful.

I've looked a long time for this first addition, finally found it !

I am the illustrator and co-author of this instructional book. This may seem like shameless self promotion, and I guess it is - but I am really proud of this totally cool book! There's two years of hard work crammed into these pages. Besides the all the drawings, I've done a whole lot of hands on work on glaciers in Alaska, Canada & the Cascades. Both Andy and I teach glacier rescue skills for an outdoor school (NOLS), and we've spent a lot of time trouble shooting and simplifying the complex systems you'll need know before setting foot on a glacier. Here's the bottom line - GLACIERS ARE DANGEROUS! Make sure you are educated (with this up-to-date book) if you plan on any kind of glacier travel! If nothing else, there are over 200 easy to read, step by step, technical illustrations that are fun to look at - and very informative!

This was a great book, short, concise and extremely descriptive. A lot of the descriptions for a knot or setup of a pulley system is covered in Freedom of the Hills and other books. But in any other book, you will be disappointed to only find a description, leaving the reader wondering...hmm..Now where would I use this? In the Illustrated Guide, not only do they provide great drawings and demonstrations for everything mentioned, but they also talk about when, and why. After reading this book I have felt so much more confidence in my level of knowledge about glacier travel. It's the perfect book for those wishing to learn or to teach others.

This was a wonderful Christmas Present. As the mother of the author (Andy Tyson) I loved seeing his words in print. The illustrator (Mike Clelland) has drawn humorous and helpful pictures. Now we will have a better idea of what our son has been doing in his job and also vacation time. We've seen his photographs taken during glacier expeditions. This book more clearly tells the details of living and trekking on glaciers.

Great book with awesome pictures that help explain complex concepts about glacier travel. I'd buy this before Freedom of the Hills.
