He reveals the variety of the region, including the contrasting Verdon gorges in France- the Mont Blanc glaciers- and, the granite walls of Bregaglia, the baroque ridges of the Dolomites and the light coloured limestone faces of the Julian Alps. Whilst the majority of the book is devoted to stunning photography, there is a significant contribution in text with chapters including the Alps as the birds see them- the myth about avalanches- landscapes of wine- geology- glacier changes- climate and expected changes- water, forests, flora
