Q&A with author Hal Clifford
Do young rescuers get too enthusastic?
Is this book just for mountain rescue volunteers?
Did you talk about this book a little bit at the national MRA conference in Vail this year?
Hal responds: Yes, I did--were you there? I think Mountain Rescue Association volunteers are a natural audience for this book, but not the only one. To me, the rescue work is a template on which human relationships are played out. I see The Falling Season as a book not only about rescues, but about human relationships. In the end, all stories are stories about people, which is why I hope this book will have broad appeal, even to people who may never visit the mountains.
