"Loved this man's trip. Set a goal, persevered and accomplished it, learning more about himself and stretching his limits to the danger point. Real, emotions expressed without going overboard, but nevertheless quite real. I enjoyed the book. No bragging or ego tripping, just a man setting a tough goal for himself and suffering and enjoying the journey. Have a couple of friends that will enjoy it this Christmas!" - Reviewer This book is the story of a former technology executive who took leave of the Real World to reinvent himself as a 21st century mountain man. In October/November 2013, he crossed the Rocky Mountains alone on foot.

Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park welcomes more than 4 million visitors every year, but this jewel of America’s parks has seen more than its fair share of deaths among its tourists. More than 70 people have perished attempting to climb Longs Peak, the park’s tallest mountain—some of whom vanished into the wilderness, never to be found. Thousand-foot falls from high rock ledges, hypothermia, avalanches that bury climbers, lightning strikes, a historic flood, and even plane crashes are among the ways that park visitors have met a bad end. Author Randi Minetor also provides tips for staying alive and safe in the Rocky Mountains.

Nicknamed 'Mountain Man' by the Sunday Telegraph, James Forrest is the record-breaking adventurer who climbed every mountain in England and Wales in just six months – the fastest ever time. Solo and unsupported, he walked over 1,000 miles and ascended five times the height of Everest during his 446-peak challenge. And he did it all on his days off from work, proving it is possible to integrate an epic adventure into your everyday life. From collapsing tents and horrific storms to near-fatal mountaineering mishaps, James endured his fair share of hardship out in the hills. But the good times far outweighed the bad. He slept wild under the stars, met eccentric locals, and exchanged the 21st century social media bubble for a simpler, more peaceful existence. What did he learn along the way? That life is more fulfilling when you switch off your phone and climb a mountain. Readers will be inspired and motivated by James's amazing adventure, and so the book concludes with a section on how YOU can achieve your next adventure – whether it's something to get the kids involved in at half term, a fun challenge to tackle solo or with friends, or, like James's, a record-breaking attempt of epic proportions, James will guide you through everything you need to do to plan and execute your adventure, as well as give you some great ideas too.

If you liked "Wild" (and who didn't), you will love this wilderness adventure.
