Could life get any better than to be a dashing young climbing guide, when McKinley was not yet crowded, writing the formative chapters of adventure on North America's premier playground? For Hale, a series of events cause him to ponder whether there is a different kind of high adventure to which he is being drawn, even as it demands his very soul.
