Mountaincraft and Leadership was first published in 1969 and went through three editions, with numerous reprints, before this fourth edition. It has become established as one of the authoritative texts in the field of UK mountaineering and hillwalking, both for the recreational participant and those leading others in the hills. It is now published by The Mountain Training Boards of England and Scotland. With the death of Eric Langmuir this new edition has been thoroughly rewritten by a team of experts and specialists to bring it up to date and incorporate latest thinking and developments in equipment and access legislation.

Chapters include: Navigation, Hillwalking Technique, Campcraft and Expeditions, Food and Nutrition, Access and Conservation, Security on Steep Ground, River Crossing, Mountain Weather, Mountain Hypothermia, Effects of Heat, First Aid, Incident Management and Mountain Rescue, Party Leadership, Technique on Snow and Ice, Security on Snow and Ice, Snow and Avalanches and Cold Injury. New illustrations and diagrams have been commissioned to support the revised text to enhance this fully comprehensive text.
