KIRKUS REVIEW

Snow, the ""white treasure"", its uses and dangers, forms the subject of this compact text. As a determinant of the amount of water the Western and Northern states will have, as a possible source of flood and avalanche disaster, the volume of snow cannot be left to guesswork. The section of the United States Soil Conservation agency devoted to this subject keeps the country informed. Its work is highly technical and Mr. Colby has depicted it in this book which presents interested readers in what is virtually a new channel for the career-minded.
