Encounters in Avalanche Country A History of Survival in the Mountain West, 1820-1920 by Diana L. Di Stefano

Dec 9 2013 7:00 pm

Written in a lively and engaging narrative style, Encounters in
Avalanche Country uncovers authentic stories of survival struggles,
frightening avalanches, and how local knowledge challenged legal
traditions that defined avalanches as Acts of God. Combining disaster,
mining, railroad, and ski histories with the theme of severe winter
weather, it provides a new and fascinating perspective on the settlement
of the Mountain West.

Diana L. Di Stefano is assistant professor of history at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks.
