Detailed Product Description
Ireland, 1998, 1st Irish edition. 222 pp, color and b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Near Fine condition.

The inspirational story of Pat Falvey, the first Irishman to climb the seven summits.

Pat Falvey is a motivational speaker, adventurer and expedition leader. He has completed over 38 expeditions and is the only Irish person to have completed the Seven Summits challenge. He summited Mount Everest in 1995, Mount Vinson in Antarctica in 1997 and climbed an 8,000m peak (Cho Oyu in Tibet) without Oxygen.

Pat Falvey, adventurer-guide and motivational lecturer, is the first person from Ireland to climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents which includes Everest, the highest mountain in the world. His is a story of courage and triumph, of how to turn adversity to advantage. A millionaire by the age of 26, at 29 he was almost broke. But the tough times experienced in his childhood stood him in good stead. As he coped with personal and financial problems head on, he was also discovering the great outdoors.
 
His incredible positive energy propelled him to new goals in the world of adventure. This culminated in his odyssey to the southern hemisphere from January to March 1997, during which he climbed Mount Vinson in Antarctica, Mount Cook in New Zealand, and Mount Kosciusko in Australia, as well as exploring the jungles of Irian Jaya in New Guinea. The latter involved a period as a guest of the Dani tribe, currently in danger of extinction from the occupying Indonesian forces.
