Review

BRILLIANT! Honest, gritty and remarkable."" - Sir Chris Bonington, mountaineer and author

""Andrew Lock has written a superb and very honest account of climbing all the 8000-metre summits and the connection he made with the Himalayan mountains, the Himalayan people and the Himalayan climbers he met along the way. In this book you will discover how, time and time again, a man can draw on his inner strength and also that he does not suffer fools gladly."" - Doug Scott, mountaineer and author

""The book reveals his respect for the process, reverence for the mountains and connection to the people who live in some of the most challenging terrains in the world."" - Sydney Morning Herald

""Filled with humour, drama and some sadness, it's a must-read."" - Outdoor --This text refers to the paperback edition.
