The story of the famed large format cinematographer, adventurer, and mountaineer whose terrifying experiences on Mount Everest during the deadly 1996 season became the defining moment of his life. By 1995, David Breashears had already twice reached Mt. Everest's summit. Then he faced the greatest challenge of his life: to scale the 29,028-foot peak, hauling the giant IMAX® camera to film the large format film, Everest. In this extraordinary memoir, Breashears takes that perilous climb, during which 9 would tragically perish, and uses it as the linchpin of his life. As his fans will discover, there is an inextricable link between this enigmatic man's troubled childhood, his brilliant successes as a climber and cinematographer, and his courage and honor in the face of disaster.

    " This was another good book about the Everest disaster of 1996. It now marks the third book on the topic that I have read. Similar to my polygomy kick, I think if I let this go, it could become my next obsession. However, I am going to cut myself off and not read any more Everest books. Unless I could find an account of a polygomous family who all climbed Everest together....now that could be an interesting read!!! :-) "

    " The story of David Breashears from teenage rock climber to high mountain filmmaker Not only does he climb Mount Everest but he films it as well. He becomes involved in a high mountain rescue and returns the following year to climb again. "

    " This is a fantastic book that starts to explain the allure of high places and dangerous hobbies. Its a journey of self-knowledge as he puts it. This book shows another point of view from the Everest tragedy in 1996. I liked the fact that he doesn't spare his pride in the recounting of events - in many examples explaining that he was a fool to do things the way he'd done them. I admire that, I also admire his artistic vision in bringing the beauty and passion for the outdoors to those whom wouldn't be able to experience it otherwise. "
