Climbing for Causes2007年8月14日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
The title, Climbing for Causes, caught my attention, but I must say reading the tale of this firefighter humanitarian captured my heart. It replaced a belief in mankind, a belief that there is genuine good left in this world. There are people left that actually do amazing acts of kindness in an effort to bring attention to worthy causes, such as diabetes and cancer. The play by play of the mountain climbing of a man, with no prior experience but overloads of determination and passion, grasped my attention and interest - just as if I were climbing those mountains along side him. His icy details of the environment, the scarey and realistic aspects of harsh weather and nature is riveting. You find yourself cheering for him when he reaches a summit and also saddened when weather and illness take the accomplishment away. It is a true tale of mankind going up against the largest combatants in the world - fate, humanity itself and most of all Mother Nature. It is well worth your time to read and see how the tale plays out. You may find yourself a changed person for it - changed for the better.
Love books by local authors2016年9月5日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Love books by local authors. Found this while at a Barnes & Nobles in Racine, WI. Great read. Would recommend to anyone that loves adventure with a personal flair. It takes a special person to tackle these mountains and do it to benefit others! Once I started it was difficult to put down, kept my interest from beginning to end. Great book to give as a gift.
