Post Reid, Mayne: The Cliff Climbers v1 3 jan 2009

Thomas Mayne Reid (April 4, 1818 October 22, 1883), was an Irish-American novelist. "Captain" Reid wrote many adventure novels akin to those written by Frederick Marryat and Robert Louis Stevenson. He was a great admirer of Lord Byron. These novels contain action that takes place primarily in untamed settings: the American West, Mexico, South Africa, the Himalayas, and Jamaica.(Wikipedia)

The book begins with two young brothers and an Indian guide, in a valley in the Himalayas, into which they had ascended with some difficulty in the preceding book--"The Plant Hunters". Unfortunately they find they cannot get out at the top of the valley, and they cannot go back the way they came. So they are stuck. They try various ingenious ideas for getting out, each of which appears as though it would work, but in the end does not, usually in a quite entertaining way. Eventually they do think of a way, which I will not divulge here, and they get out, but it had been a long nerve-racking period before their final release. (Athelstane)
