KIRKUS REVIEW

The sidestep, herringbone, snowplow, run, traverse, and stem christie are described in very brief but comprehensible terms by the author. Photographs of a small boy making the common mistakes, correcting them, and finally becoming a little , are unexceptional, but serve to illustrate the points made. The short discussion of parallel skiing, a difficult technique to master, is not very useful; if the young skier is able to learn the basic steps from a book, he will doubtless require instruction--on the slopes--to progress further.
