“Here is a molehill of a book!

”Other authors – hundreds of them – tell why mountains are climbed. Our author tells why mountains aren’t climbed – at least by him.

”In the world of mountain climbing, Maurice Dolbier’s name is regarded as second to nothing.

"Mr. Dolbier, whose family motto is “J’avoide,” and whose crest is “a stoat truly couchant, with dejected gules,” tells with stark simplicity the story of how, through fortitude, pluck, and endurance, he has never climber Mount Everest.

"How many men can make that claim?

”In this ascent to the height of the ridiculous, the publishers have roped the author together with Virgil F. Partch, that veritable Kanchenjunga among cartoonists.

"Their topical and topographical foray is the mountain book to end all mountain books, and the “How-Not-To” book of the Year.”
