Detailed Product Description
Cape Town, 2004, 1st edition. 238 pp, 200+ color photos. “It is both a liberating and terrifying moment when you realize you have committed everything you know to a single task. Everest is no different. Yes, we could lose our lives, but most of the time that’s not what we fear. We fear failing. We fear taking that step out onto a rickety bridge and feeling it collapse beneath us, leaving the masses standing on the banks saying ‘I told you so’. We fear discovering that the reality falls far short of the dreams we have for ourselves. As a result, most of us are afraid to discover, and some of us won’t even dream.” 

Rocks and Hard Places is Alex Harris’s first-hand narrative of his attempt to reach the Seven Summits – the highest point on each of the seven continents. It is a journey, punctuated by personal triumphs and bitter disappointments, that takes him from the sticky tropical forests of Irian Jaya to the biting, sub-zero temperatures of Mount Everest. The book provides a unique perspective of the joys, tragedies, epiphanies and betrayals that climbers experience in the punishing conditions of high altitude. Large format hardcover, DJ, New.
