No Shortcuts to the Top: Climbing the World's 14 Highest Peaks

by ,

Show Synopsis

For 18 years, Viesturs pursued climbing's holy grail: to stand atop the world's fourteen 8,000-meter peaks, without the aid of bottled oxygen. However, "No Shortcuts to the Top" is as much about the man who would become the first American to achieve that goal as it is about his stunning quest.

Great adventure!

A real page turner! Couldn't put it down! Now I feel almost ready to climb Everest, myself....not quite yet!
