By Bo Parfet
In early 2003, a tender Wall road funding banker named Bo Parfet got down to accomplish anything only a few had performed before--climbing the top mountain on each continent. He was once no longer a qualified climber, yet what begun as an informal curiosity might quickly develop into a lifelong ardour and in precisely over 4 years, Bo could conquer the percentages and triumph over all the mountains--Kilimanjaro, Aconcagua, Denali, Vinson Massif, Elbrus, Carstenz Pyramid, Kosciusko, and Everest--with braveness, unbridled ardour, and resolution. Combining the gripping narrative of "Into skinny Air" with the adrenaline-fueled drama of "Vertical Limit," "Die attempting" is the really good tale of 1 man's conflict opposed to his personal barriers. From dodging avalanches to crossing a ladder over a doubtless bottomless crevasse, to creating his approach during the Khumbu Icefall and burying a lifeless teammate at 27, 000 toes, we event all the author's exhilarating, usually terrifying climbs first-hand. We trip with him in the course of his near-death reviews while falling right into a crevasse in New Zealand and nearly-drowning in crocodile-infested rapids in the course of a canoe race in Belize. And we proportion the phobia of his confrontations with corrupt military officers, cannibalistic tribesmen, and native defense force teams. Harrowing and uplifting, "Die making an attempt" is a riveting memoir that would encourage we all to defy the chances and satisfy our desires.
