Mountaineers Books Pickets & Dead Men: Seasons On Rainier
A women's perspective on the macho world of climbing rangers* Rescues, egos, and breakfast burritos on Mt. Rainier Being a climbing ranger on Mount Rainier proved to be a life-altering experience for Bree Loewen. As one of only a handful of women on staff, Bree fought to prove herself among men in the field, while confronting the often unrealistic expectations of the public on a mountain that shows little mercy. With honesty, self-deprecation, and wry humor, she reflects on her experiences on Rainier: assisting injured climbers, rescuing lost children, battling inscrutable bureaucracy, lugging heavy equipment, and trying to make sense of it all. Whether it's her account of a solo climb in dicey conditions or trying to protect her good jacket while cleaning the outhouses at Camp Muir, Loewen's writing is engagingly human and humane.

Pickets & Dead Men: Seasons On Rainier
Wish the book had been longer - but I can see why she had enough after 3 seasons.
Her very descriptive writing brought back a lot of good Rainier memories. I had a female Ranger on my summit climb in the 80's ,which I thought was extra cool. Just hope they get better treatment these days.
I'm a guy and some of her stories are hard to swallow.
