    Adventurist Jim Wickwire has lived life on the edge -- literally.

  • To the End of the Earthby Tom Avery

    St. Martin's Press 2009; US$ 8.99

    April 2009 is the one-hundredth anniversary of perhaps the greatest controversy in the history of exploration. Did U.S. Naval Commander Robert Peary and his team dogsled to the North Pole in thirty-seven days in 1909? Or, as has been challenged, was this speed impossible, and was he a cheat? In 2005, polar explorer Tom Avery and his team set out... more...

A captivating exploration of the daredevil world of rock climbing,... more...

  • Savage Summitby Jennifer Jordan

    HarperCollins 2009; Not Available

    Though not as tall as Everest, the "Savage Mountain" is far more dangerous. Located on the border of China and Pakistan, K2 has some of the harshest climbing conditions in the world.
