All our copies are new and are by SIGNED by Rick Ridgeway. There is no extra charge for the signature. 

A life worth living is lived at the edges where it is wild. 

At the beginning of his memoir Life Lived Wild, Adventures at the Edge of the Map, Rick Ridgeway tells us that if you add up all his many expeditions, hes spent over five years of his life sleeping in tents: And most of that in small tents pitched in the worlds most remote regions. Its not a boast so much as an explanation. Whether at elevation or raising a family back at sea level, those years taught him to distinguish matters of consequence from matters of inconsequence. He leaves it to his readers, though, to do the final sort of which is which.

Some of his adventures made, and remain, news: in 1978 he was only the 12th person to climb K2, and in 1976 he was on the American team that put the 56th and 57th climbers on the summit of Everest.
 
He made the first direct coast-to-coast traverse of Borneo; the did first crossing on foot of a 300-mile corner of Tibet so remote no outsider had ever seen it. Big as these trips were, Rick keeps an eye out for the quiet surprises, like the butterflies he encounters at 23,000 feet on K2 or the furtive silhouettes of wild-eared pheasants in Tibet.

What really comes through best in Life Lived Wild, though, are his fellow travelers. Theres Patagonia billionaire founder Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins, best known for cofounding The North Face and Esprit, but better remembered for his conservation and creation of several National Parks throughout Patagonia. Rick treats all his team mates with candor and straightforward tenderness. And through their commitments to protecting the wild places they shared, he discovers his own.

An accomplished storyteller, this long-awaited memoir is the book end to Ridgeways impressive list of publications, including: 
  • THE BOLDEST DREAM: THE STORY OF TWELVE WHO CLIMBED MOUNT EVEREST; In 1976 Chris Chandler and Robert Cormack were the 56th and 57th climbers to summit Everest
  • THE LAST STEP: THE AMERICAN ASCENT OF K2; In 1978 Lou Reichardt, Jim Wickwire, Rick Ridgeway and John Roskelley were the 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th climbers to climb K2. 
  • SEVEN SUMMITS with Dick Bass and Frank Wells. Dick Bass was the first person to climb the Seven Summits.  
  • THE SHADOW OF KILIMANJARO:  ON FOOT ACROSS EAST AFRICA; 
  • BELOW ANOTHER SKY: A MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE IN SEARCH OF A LOST FATHER; and
