[study-]ing glaciers while sitting in an easy chair at home.Here you have written us a book so charmingly realistic, that we have only to sit in our rocker with none of the drudgery and weariness of climbing and obtain a near vision of the "Range of Light, the most divinely beautiful of all the mountain chains."During the past week I have been urging my good husbandto take a trip to the High Sierras to obtain relief from his troublesome asthma. But now I shall hand him "The mountains of California" and as he sits in his easy chair and roams through those "mountain mansions where nature has taken pains to gather her choicest treasures" the asthma will disappear like the morning mists.Thanking you very much for remembering
