For more about Dr. Otto T. Trott, see Nicholas Campbell Croff, The Making of a Rescuer: The Inspiring Life of Otto T. Trott, MD, Rescue Doctor and Mountaineer (2008).

For more about the translation of Mountain Rescue Techniques, check out this blog post—pictures included!—or read Mark S. Weiner’s forthcoming article in the Journal of Austria-American History (it should be out soon; in the meantime, just ask Mark for a copy).

The link between mountains and literature is deep. For consideration, we offer Ome and Matie Daiber’s book plate (as shown).
