Addicted to Danger: A Memoir About Affirming Life in the Face of Death.
by [Mountaineering] Wickwire, Jim and Dorothy Bullitt.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. Jim Wickwire is considered "one of America's most extraordinary and accomplished high-altitude mountaineers". He was one of the first two Americans to reach the summit of the 28,250 foot K2 and completed the first alpine-style ascent of Alaska's Mt. McKinley. On his various climbs, Wickwire has broken bones, witnessed the deaths of fellow climbers and experienced a personal threat to his faith in himself and hope for the future. This is a compelling memoir of adventure and self-assessment. This copy is signed by Wickwire.
