Epic—a mountaineering term that evokes a sense of treacherous disaster. The climb that went wrong: fighting blinding snowstorms and horrific avalanches; days spent tentbound running low on food, water and oxygen; surviving broken bones and shattered spirits. With writing from Greg Child, David Roberts, Stephen Venables, Alfred Lansing and others, Epic is a collection of the most memorable accounts of legend-making expeditions to the world’s most famous peaks, often in the worst possible conditions. Epic is an adventure audiobook at its most compelling! Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “If you liked Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air, read this book.”

    Peter Kadzis, editor, Boston Phoenix

  • “Great climbing writing is all too rare. This superb anthology collects some of our very best.”

    Dougald MacDonald, editor, Rock & Ice

  • “From Alfred Lansing’s narrative of the 1915 Shackleton expedition to…Jon Krakauer’s chronicle of his bold solo of the Devils Thumb…this is a superb collection of some of the best mountain and adventure writing of the century. An essential read.”

    Michael Kennedy, editor-in-chief, Climbing magazine

  • Epic…is powerful, bringing the prospect of frostbitten flesh, chattering teeth, sudden avalanches, and treacherous ice paths into vivid clarity. The listener feels the intense discomforts and experiences the worry of the climbers but, with morbid fascination, still wants more.”
