Seven Summits

Seven Summits by Dick Bass, Frank Wells, Rick Ridgeway 0446385166 9780446385169
Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary


Dick Bass was a successful entrepreneur. Frank Wells was a Hollywood studio president. Together they set out to accomplish what no one else ever had: climbing the highest mountain on each of the seven continents. The fact that both men had so little climbing experience turned out to be their greatest strength: since they had no idea what they were in for, they never considered their task out of reach.Rick Ridgeway, an accomplished climber in his own right, chronicles their journey, allowing readers to decide if these adventures are the result of midlife crisis or simply about men pursuing a dream with unshakeable resolve. Whatever the case, Ridgeways fast-paced adventure provides gripping descriptions of the worlds tallest peaks. We see the logistical nightmares of Antarcticas Mt. Vinson, the unpredictable weather of McKinley, and the extreme altitude of Everests 8,848 meters. Ridgeway continues up Aconcagua, Elbrus, Kilimanjaro, and Kosciusko with lively accounts that capture the day-to-day operations of expedition life, and more intriguingly, the growing bond between two driven men. --Ben Tiffany
