Editorial Reviews


Three harrowing tales... stories of those who have survived the 'pain, grief, and world of trouble' of a good climb gone terribly wrong. (Outside magazine)

Forget the hype about the new 'extreme' sports; mountaineering has been around for centuries and it's clearly the most extreme of all ... it's hard to beat Peter Potterfield's In the Zone. (Men's Journal)

A compelling and somewhat troubling look at the dark side of mountaineering. (Jon Krakauer, author, Into Thin Air)
