Overview


A falling climber's rope snaps thousands of feet above the ground. Two backcountry skiers find themselves buried by an avalanche. Wild winds hurl a paraglider out of control. A daring kayak venture helps an aging legend discover greater health and happiness.

Thrilling yet thoughtful, the book explains the athletes' motivations and shares valuable lessons learned from their experiences.
