Again, this is a good conversation starter and starting place to learn more, but it needs editing. Photos were nice, well taken. The ends of the books are a bit preachy about using too much and needing to share with others....don't think I am going to mail water anywhere. I do know that my children are water babies and love water areas, but when we went to the lake over a winter, we discovered how much trash was in the water and how they might have ended up injured from all the broken glass, the needles, and rusted beer cans. Every year, I say I will go and help with the cleanup, but never make it due to other obligations. One of these days, we may make it up there to help clean up.

This little error stopped me dead in my tracks. I guess I am getting tired of reading the books for school use and little things are just stopping me.
I would say that this book is also good for starting conversations and had some good beginner information on Avalanches. The author just needs to go back and quick edit.
Good information, another that is good for general information and a starting point for more information. Liked the use of the old photographs. My only point would be to edit the book. Some of the errors would be confusing for early readers and/or those who have reading issues.
