Dee Moleenar traces the formation and evolution of mountain rescue groups that carried out legendary rescue and recovery missions throughout the Pacific Northwest over the past fifty years. In sharing these stories of triumph and tragedy, he remembers the volunteers who risked their lives to save others in peril.
Beginning with an overview of the physical characteristics of the mountaineering environment, Molenaar describes the specific geography of Mount Rainier and Mount Hood, where many rescues and recoveries have taken place over the years. He chronicles harrowing circumstances, including falls, avalanches, climbers getting lost, and a plane crash on the mountain.
