Library Journal Review

This new introduction to the basics of cross-country skiing covers techniques that have been described in other books, including John Caldwell's The New Cross-Country Ski Book (Penguin) , a standard in the field with ten printings from 1964 to 1988. Gullion, who teaches classes for the Professional Ski Instructors of America, includes sensible practice activities for each technique and suggests solutions for common problems. She also has a chapter on cross-country downhill, the beautiful and dangerous skill which combines Nordic and alpine skiing. In spite of some overlapping of coverage with other books, this primer should find an audience in public libraries simply because the sport is growing so rapidly in popularity.-- Dean Willms, Fort Collins P.L., Col.
