A mountaineering yearbook, including articles, expedition reports, book reviews, obituaries, memoirs, geography and
history. The Alpine Journal is the world's principal mountaineering year-book and essential reading for all who love the mountains, in particular those who climb in the Alps and the Greater Ranges. In the 106th edition of the Alpine Journal Doug Scott describes his encounter with a remarkable tribe in remote mountainous jungles high up in the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh - a refreshing antidote to the high-profile media-managed expeditions of the modern professional era. Elsewhere, Martin Price looks forward to the International Year of the Mountains 2002, examining the environmental and economic issues facing mountain regions all over the world. George Band has a rare chance to explore one of the most fragile of those regions, the Nanda Devi Sanctuary. The role of women in mountaineering is also examined in articles about Ginette Harrison, Beatrice Tomasson and Hester Norris. Award-winning biographer Peter Gillman returns to the subject of the yeti and leading alpinists Athol Whimp and Ian Parnell describe their adventures.
