Detailed Product Description

New York, 2001, 1st edition. 321 pp, b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine. May have remainder mark on bottom or top pages edge.

On a 1980 climb of Minya Konka with Ridgeway, Jonathan Wright perished. 20 years later Ridgeway led Wright's daughter to her father's grave, in a trip of personal discovery. Combining gripping adventure writing with intimate memoir, Rick Ridgeway takes readers to the mysterious mountain domain of Tibet and into the remote corners of his past.

What Tim Cahill called the 'most intensely personal' of his books, Ridgeway recounts his amazing journey with Asia Wright, the daughter of his friend Jonathan, who was killed in a horrific avalanche twenty years before. Hoping to help her connect with the father she never knew, Ridgeway travels with her to the breathtaking Himalayas Jonathan so cherished.

Ridgeway's storytelling hits perfect pitch as he weaves together dramatic stories of past adventure with his and Asia's journey of self-discipline and self-discovery. Destined to become a classic, Below Another Sky is at once an evaluation of a life lived on the edge and a story of loss and of mysterious truths revealed.

MORE: Reknowned adventurer Ridgeway travels to Tibet with a young woman in search of her father's memory and gains a fresh perspective on his own life. Combining gripping adventure writing with intimate memoir, Rick Ridgeway takes readers to the mysterious mountain domain of Tibet, and into the remote corners of his past. Twenty years ago, in the wake of a massive and terrifying avalanche, Ridgeway cradled his dying friend Jonathan in his arms and pledged to keep watch over Jonathan's infant daughter, Asia.

Now Asia is a vibrant, headstrong young woman; hoping to help her connect with the father she never knew, Ridgeway takes her to the Himalayas Jonathan so cherished. Together, they search for the place where he died. Their trek through remote and forbidding terrain - under constant threat from lethal storms and jumpy Chinese military patrols - is a fitting backdrop for the precarious emotional journey that Ridgeway and Asia share, as they venture into alien landscapes of memory and self-discovery. Ultimately, the truths they both seek are revealed, not in the images of a life long gone but in the bright promise of future possibility. In a stunning conclusion on a treacherous and wind-battered mountain face, both Ridgeway and his dead friend's daughter finally embrace the deepest realities of death, and of life.
