Detailed Product Description
New York, 1985, 1st edition. 181 pp. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition.

Probably signed by Rob Schultheis and dated "5/24/97" on the half title page.

An exploration of the emotional and physical highs you get from running, climbing and other life experiences.  Don't be deceived by the title. This book leaps beyond mere 'games' and instead zeroes in on a wide spectrum of outdoor adventurers. The author, Rob Schultheis, compares a wide spectrum of athletic psyches to himself, hoping to explain the lure to nature's most extreme challenges.
 
His writing may stray from scientific methods, but his anecdotal and personal style is engaging and often based in Eastern philosophies. Overall, a solid collection of musings in a topic rarely navigated, sprinkled with harrowing accounts of unbelievable triumphs and near-misses.
