Detailed Product Description
MULTIPLE COPIES AVAILABLE

2008. 170 pp, color photos. Pat Falvey is Ireland's best-known mountaineer-cum-adventurer. After life's ups and downs he discovered the mountains at 29, a turning point. He has since made many high-altitude ascents around the world, and is the only Irish person to complete the Seven Summits, not once but twice, and climb Everest from both north and south. Today, he runs an adventure travel company from the Macgillycuddy's Reeks in Kerry.

This lavishly-illustrated book describes his climbs on the major peaks he has visited. Pat reveals his motives and the dangers and joys at the limits of physical and mental challenges. Together, the superb photographs and honest narrative recreate the ordeals, terrible beauty and hardships of the mountains and give a unique insight into this exceptional high-altitude mountaineer and expedition leader. Large format hardcover with DJ. Corner dings from shipping, else New.

About the Author
Pat Falvey, from Cork, left school at 15 to work as a bricklayer. He quickly became a successful builder but his business failed in the depressed years of 1980s Ireland. He then took up hill walking which led him to become the adventurer he is today.
