Epic: Stories of Survival from the World's Highest Peaks | [Greg Child, David Roberts, Stephen Venables, more]

Epic: Stories of Survival from the World's Highest Peaks

"Epic" is 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. This program offers a collection of the most memorable accounts of legend-making expeditions to the world's most famous peaks, often in the worst possible conditions.

    "A must for all mountaineers"

    Some of the classic tales of mountaineering compiled into a well narrated compendium...I didn't know all the climbers, but there was plenty of action from Chris Boardman, Don Whillans and Doug Scott to keep my interest going...
