Chris Webber will be talking about his book "Mountains Mishaps: death, miracles, and misadventure in the Blue Mountains". There's a chance to win a free copy at the door. Gold coin donation for the local RFS unit. The book is a history of search and rescue operations in the Blue Mountains and is an amazing read. There is a rescue operation every second day, on average in the Blue Mountains. The book includes 620 incidents over 150 years. It celebrates the contribution made by volunteers and the professionalism and heroism of our rescuers. There are some terrific stories of survival. The book hopes to encourage outdoor adventurers to make proper precautions for their trip. It has a history of the local railways, air crashes, floods, storms, earth tremors, snow falls and rock falls. There's also a history of the local emergency services.
