Reviews

Stephen Ambrose author of Undaunted Courage I've spent a lifetime reading books by or about the famous adventurers....David Breashears's book is the first I've read by an end-of-the-twentieth-century mountain climber that surpasses many of them and is equal to all.
Claire Martin The Denver Post Very few of us will ever set foot on Everest....But this thoughtful, philosophical narrative may be the next best thing to being there.
Bruce Barcot The New York Times Book Review The greatest pleasures in High Exposure come when [Breashears] invites his readers in to the clannish subculture [of climbing].
