Detailed Product Description
US, 2019, 1st edition. 332 pp, photos. Softcover. Near Fine. 

A jolt of wind in the pre-dawn hours awakens Dr. John C. Hill as snow pours through a gaping hole in his collapsed tent. An avalanche has just struck his camp on Manaslu in Nepal. John scrambles for his boots and gears up to join the early morning chaos. News of deaths and missing climbers emerges as John watches helplessly, still dealing with a devastating loss back home.

An accomplished sports medicine physician and ultra-athlete, John has uncanny familiarity with spiritual experiences in the operating room and on mountainsides. He is accustomed to injury and near-death experiences and is well-prepared. In every arena he attacks life All In. Still, he is not prepared for an infant who would gaze into his soul.

In this powerful and entertaining memoir, Dr. John Charles Hill chronicles his climb of  Manaslu, the eighth highest mountain in the world. His keen observational skills and uncommon vulnerability bring to life the terrain, people, and experience of a professionally guided climb in Nepal. Meanwhile, the author's family is in crisis at home in Colorado. 

Dr. Hill shares multiple personal stories from his unique perspective as a sports medicine physician, ultra-athlete, husband and father. He invites us into his world of unexpected disasters, life and death, spiritual encounters and miracles with an innate sense of humor and gifted eloquence. He demonstrates what it means to live a life "All In".
