Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two Undaunted Men Frank Wells was the head of a major motion picture studio. Dick Bass had made his fortune as an energy and resort entrepreneur. In middle age, both men left behind home, family, and successful careers to share an impossible dream. Seven Unconquered Summits The challenge: be the first to climb the highest mountain on each of seven continents, from McKinley to Kilimanjaro to Everest. The obstacles: many and merciless, from ice storms to illness to a measurement question that threatened to make their record-breaking expedition a sham. The prize: the sheer, exhilarating triumph of standing at the top of every continent on earth.

Synopsis:

A thrilling and inspirational odyssey of two men's climb to the top of the highest peaks on each of the seven continents. "A great adventure story, filled with heroics, tragedy, humor and ultimately the triumph of the human spirit".--Tom Brokaw. 32-page insert.
