NO SHORTCUTS TO THE TOP Climbing the World's 14 Highest Peaks

by | Read by Ed Viesturs

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

Projecting the same enthusiasm that he has for mountaineering, Ed Viesturs shares his tale of climbing the world's fourteen 8,000-plus meter peaks. From his inspiration for climbing to the completion of his feat, Viesturs recounts both the physical and emotional toll that professional mountain climbers face when challenged by these summits. Viesturs also explains why he is compelled to be a master of deadly terrain. In addition, he shares his insights about other famous mountaineers and writers he has met, such as Rob Hall and Jon Krakauer. Personalizing the adventure and spirit of mountaineering, Viesturs explicitly tells of both the dangers and thrills of summiting in this compelling account of his life's work.
