First edition of famous skiing filmmaker Warren Miller's humorous book about taking a skiing trip while broke.
"Wine, Women, Warren, and Skis is a book that's not too big (you can easily finish it in a sitting or two) that captures that Golden Age of Skiing. Miller chronicles one season, the winter of 1945, living in a camper the size of a pull-out couch, with just enough room for the barest of essentials. It's funny, endearing, and you can't help but cheer for the protagonist when he coerces or cheats his way on hill and gets to ski another day" (Mountain Life). Contemporary owner signature.
