Product Description

(Excerpt Taken from the back cover)

Epic is a collection of fifteen memorable accounts of legend-making expeditions to the world's most famous peaks, often in the world's worst possible conditions. Editor Clint Willis has gathered the most exciting climbing literature of the modern age into one cliff-hanging volume. Included in this collection are works by climbers who write very vell and superb writers who happen to climb. Reading Epic: Stories of Survival from the World's Highest Peaks is like sitting through fifteen of the greatest action sequences ever filmed--but it's more than that. Epic is great writing and truly a great read.

Great book!!
I read this book all the way through. All the stories seem to be well written. Some better than others. Overall I believe this is a worthwhile book to pick up.

Great Read
I agree with 2skinners. This is a great collection of stories about men who have pushed it to places most of us have only dreamed about.
