A beautiful book of inspirations and survival My husband will enjoy this book as much as I do. It is a beautiful book of inspirations and survival. I loved the photos and the quotes at the end of the chapters. This book is full of adventures. I loved how the main character is fearless and enjoy the best times of his life. I cannot imagine how gorgeous the view is. I would rather take photographs than climb as I have fear of heights. This book is not only amazing but the tips are very helpful too. If you love the wild scenery like Alaska, this book will amazes you. I enjoyed reading this book.

Keep going but know when to take a break and maybe wait for another day. This can apply to almost anything you want to do. When I first started my Bookkeeping Business there were nay sayers a plenty. I calmly kept going forward. Sure I made a couple of mistakes along the way-everyone does--but I kept on going until I had about 30 clients or more--and I was a solo practitioner!! I remember my neighbors saying how will you make enough to pay your bills--I said--just watch me! It took my Mom a lot longer to realize I had actually done it. Well, now I am semi retired and am still working with some of the clients I started with. They have informed me I am not allowed to fully retire. When you read how this author actually went SOLO to climb Denali (formally called Mt. Everest)--you can only marvel at his stamina. Luckily he had the sense to not make it to the top--it was too dangerous at the time. You will also notice that he helped and was helped by other climbers along the way. After each chapter is an inspirational quote which can be applied in many ways in your daily lives!

Reading books is a simple pleasure really, and for one true book lover being pulled into the story is always a thing, but the real excitement happens with the stories that have really happened. While, yes who doesn't a love a good fantasy or being able to let your imagination run wild with some flying dragon or a super intense crime thriller that makes you root for the good guys, it's those stories that really happened that grab you the most. Real adventure, real danger, real mystery, the unknown unfolding within each page. It grips you fast and keeps you at the edge of your seat wanting to know just what happens! Lost at Windy Corner is a book just like that, and I loved it! It's always a pleasure to read along as an adventure unfolds, and Aarron Linsdau did an amazing job putting his experiences down on paper. In Lost at Windy Corner Aarron takes you along with him as he takes on Denali, the highest North American mountain. We are taken through several challenges and along the way some extremely interesting facts and information is poured out throughout the book, which I love! There are a few small pictures throughout the book, which give you an insight to what it was like along the way, but the way Aarron describes the entire adventure is very descriptive , full of details and gives you a great picture in your mind of what he went through along the way. Can you imagine waking up and trying to fix breakfast in -10F ? Or better yet breaking camp even to move on to the next location? Some of the things they went through were mind-blowing! It takes a great deal of focus and determination to deal with a trek through some of the harshest weather as, It's not just physically challenging but mentally fierce on oneself. Not many people would end up thinking a climb up a mountain would teach you things, but it does, in more ways than one and Aarron certainly does a wonderful job sharing the lessons learned along the way. Even though we're not climbing a mountain along side him, we can learn from his discovers and put faith behind the messages he gives which we can apply in our own lives. One of my favorite ones from the book are - " Having Gratitude for an experience is what keeps the attitude positive, even when things didn't work out as planned" There are many others which make this book a real treasure to read. You aren't just along for the adventure , but a fellow student as he learns to challenge himself, look at things a little differently and keep pushing on. Lost as Windy Corner is a great book , I really enjoyed reading how far Aarron took himself both up the mountain as well as through his own personal growth. He's got an amazing spirit and a good perspective as he explores uncertainty along his journey, which he shares wonderfully.
