9781905207244: Cairngorm John: A Life in Mountain Rescue

For over thirty years John Allen was an active member of the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team and for most of them acted as Team Leader. In `Cairngorm John' (his call sign when in contact with search and rescue helicopters) he recalls the challenges of mountain rescue and the many changes he has both witnessed and been a party to. His book is filled with exciting accounts of real-life rescues, discussions of mountain rescue topics such as hypothermia, first aid, and the use of helicopters and search and rescue dogs. Peopled with interesting characters, his accounts are at all times humane and the book is laced with humor. Shortlisted for the Boardman Tasker Prize.

About the Author :

John Allen was born in Glasgow in 1942. He is a retired pharmacist and businessman who eventually owned and managed a number of community pharmacies around the north of Scotland.

Review :

Cairngorm John is a thoughtful book, not macho at all. It s as much about love of the mountains as their dangers. --Libby Purves

I had to put on several layers just to read this book. It makes Touching the Void seem like a pretty routine day on the hill. --Iain Macwhirter
Cairngorm John is a remarkable piece of work: succinct, moving, compassionate, gripping, technically detailed and yet broad enough in its appeal to hold the attention of general audiences. -- --Rennie MacOwen
