Description

Are humans neglecting their ability to adapt and change? Yates explores that and other questions in an autobiographical narrative following numerous mountaineering expeditions, and looks at the role adventure plays in our lives and the effect it has on them.

Reviews

"Simon Yates' remarkable climbing journal, which offers the armchair alpinist a detailed account of lucky escapes, near disasters and more than a few triumphs, is one of the most readable mountaineering books currently on the market." -- "Literary Review"
