In several of these essays Todhunter writes from personal experience, joining his subjects as they free fall from cliffs, wriggle through narrow underground crevices, and dive deep beneath the ice of a frozen lake. In these adrenaline-laced accounts of extreme sportsmanship, Todhunter captures not only the thrill of conquest but the deep pleasure of being someplace few others have gone as well.
"Front and center in this philosophical and exhilarating collection... is the humanity motivating every incredible action."
--The New York Times Book Review
"Top-draw extreme sports writing from Todhunter, unadorned and vital and appealingly decorous."
