A Life On The Edge | Memoirs of Everest and Beyond

In stock

In May of 1963 Seattle Mountaineer Jim Whittaker stepped into world history by becoming the first Americna to summit Mount Everest.

Fifty years later, he is still regarded as a seminal figure in North America mountaineering, as well as an acute businessman who helped create the outdoor recreation industry, a loyal friend to dirt-bag climbers and celebrities alike, and the ultimate American hero.  His is a profoundly human story of success, failure, redemption, and inspiration.
