In The Perfect Turn ski history meets ski adventure in stories of great ski races and great ski racers, of the pursuit of the World Speed Record on skis, in memoirs of colorful, important, and simply remarkable skiers, in tales of winter backcountry expeditions through the remotest of snowy ranges. Author Dick Dorworth blends action with reflection in the most thoughtful and literary ski writing to come along in ages. This is a book by a skier who has lived it all, skied it all, and then thought about his sport in fresh and surprising terms. This collection brings together 19 essays that probe and reveal the very soul of skiing, and ends with a poetic piece of short fiction that gives this collection its title.
