Mountain Madness - used book

1996, ISBN: 0806528753

ID: 4434180

You're either cruisin' or you're bummin', so you might as well cruise."--Scott Fischer Mountain climber Scott Fischer's mantra would lead him to scale the highest and most treacherous peaks on earth. Best known as one of the guides who perished near the summit of Mount Everest during the tragic spring of 1996, Scott Fischer became for many an iconic symbol of audacity, hubris, and the limits of human endurance. But to those who knew him well, Scott was much more than an action figure at the heart of a modern-day cautionary tale. Now in this vivid, candid biography, Robert Birkby--one of Scott's close friends--gives us a fascinating, in-depth portrait of who Scott Fischer really was and what led him to the top of the world. As a teenage athlete growing up in New Jersey, Scott felt a restless drive to reach beyond the limits of his suburban environment. He discovered the freedom he sought during summers in the rugged mountains of Wyoming. A natural mountaineer blessed with tremendous physical strength and willpower, Scott thrived on the challenges of climbing, the beauty of the high country, and the like-minded people he found there. With the creation of a guide service he called Mountain Madness, Scott meshed his need to climb with his joy in sharing with others the lofty, rarified realms he had made his own. In adrenaline-filled narratives that take us to the world's tallest places, Robert Birkby traces the expeditions that made Scott one of the most respected cli adventurers and explorers,biographies,biographies,mountain climbing,mountaineering,specific groups,sports and outdoors Sports & Outdoors, Citadel - Kensington

"A vivid portrait of a superb athlete whose love of mountain climbing drove everything he did." --Ed Viesturs, author of No Shortcuts to the Top "A personal, uncritical biography that rounds out the portrait of Fischer sketched in Krakauer's best-seller Into Thin Air." --Bruce Barcott in The New York Times Book Review "A fitting homage to one of the great outdoor extremists." -- Kirkus Reviews "A much fuller picture of a climber widely critiqued in the high-profile coverage after the Everest tragedy." -- Seattle Post Intelligencer "Birkby succeeds in illuminating the power mountains can exert over the human soul." -- Publishers Weekly Biography & Autobiography Biography & Autobiography eBook, Kensington
