This is a comprehensive guide to one of the most beautiful but comparatively little known parts of Italy. Fully illustrated with colour photographs throughout, the book covers both winter and summer activities. More than 50 walks are described and details given of 30 different skiing areas. There are also sections on history, geology, food and wine and flora and fauna. For anyone visiting the Dolomites this book is invaluable not only as a practical guide but as a reminder of some of the most striking scenery in the Alps. James and Anne Goldsmith live in California and make frequent trips to the Dolomites. They are both experienced walkers and skiers.
