Editorial Reviews


Seattle Post Intelligencer Fascinating and searing.

New York Post A gripping tale.

Details This book takes you along for a terrifying rush that is life lived on the highest of edges.

Mountaineer Ed Viesturs This is a book that should be read by everyone who's ever dreamed of climbing.

John Balzar Los Angeles Times The day someone can answer "why climb?" is the day men and women won't have to. Until then, many will follow in the bootsteps of Jim Wickwire, one of America's most extraordinary and accomplished high-altitude mountaineers.

Publishers Weekly Well worth a read....Even those not absorbed by this sport will find themselves affected by the author's tales of friends lost on expeditions.

About the Author
