            Wind from a Distant Summit: The Story of New Zealand's Top Woman Mountaineer (Mixed media product / Mixed Media)

            By Deavoll, Pat

            "For over three decades Pat Deavoll has been climbing at the elite level of her sport, in the Southern Alps of New Zealand, the Canadian Rockies and Alaska and undertaking regular and extreme world-class expeditions to the great mountain ranges of Central Asia. In Wind from a Dis...tant Summit she tells of her early climbing in the mountains of New Zealand, and how far a singular level of drive, determination and talent has taken her from these beginnings - there are few mountaineers in New Zealand, women or men, who have sustained her level of achievement for so many years." --Back cover.

            A dramatic, inspiring memoir by legendary rock climber Tommy Caldwell, the first person to free climb the Dawn Wall of Yosemite's El Capitan On January 14, 2015, Tommy Caldwell, along with his partner, Kevin Jorgeson, summited what is widely regarded as the hardest climb in histo...ry Yosemite's nearly vertical 3,000-foot Dawn Wall, after nineteen days on the route. Caldwell's odds-defying feat was the culmination of an entire lifetime of pushing himself to his limits as an athlete. This engrossing memoir chronicles the journey of a boy with a fanatical mountain-guide father who was determined to instill toughness in a teenage son whose obsessive nature drove him to the top of the sport-climbing circuit. Caldwell's affinity for adventure then led him to the vertigo-inducing and little understood world of big wall free climbing. But his evolution as a climber was not without challenges; in his early twenties, he was held hostage by militants in a harrowing ordeal in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan. Soon after, he lost his left index finger in an accident. Later his wife, and main climbing partner, left him. Caldwell emerged from these hardships with a renewed sense of purpose and determination. He set his sights on free climbing El Capitan's biggest, steepest, blankest face the Dawn Wall. This epic assault took more than seven years, during which time Caldwell redefined the sport, found love again, and became a father. The Push is an arresting story of focus, drive, motivation, endurance, and transformation, a book that will appeal to anyone
