A different approach to safety and the prevention of the objective dangers of hiking, passing from the acquisition of awareness, knowledge of the territory and a sense of the environment.
Dozens of practical tips and tricks, the result of experience gained in the field but also of a comparison and exchange of impressions between mountain professionals, educators, experts, and high-level mountaineers.
The manual includes information on meteorology, snow and the dangers associated with it, on the geological and morphological risks that can characterize the environment of the high lands. A publication that first of all wants to stimulate curiosity, gradual experience, personal deepening, without wanting to constitute the absolute truth or the monotonous and reductive completeness of a complete work.
