Synopsis: Reprint of a 60's-style classic. A unique literary, art book on cross country skiing. Zen and the art of skiing. Photos, poems, letters and essays all interconnected. An antidote to consumerism in skiing and an energetic attempt to reconnect skiing with its roots in fluidity, friendship and just plain fun.

From the Publisher: A rare chance to add literary zest to your outdoor book collection. The revival of a classic of 'hippy' times.
