Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
In May of 2001, Brad McQueen, his wife Melissa, and his father were stranded overnight on Colorado's Mount Evans during a freak late-spring blizzard. Melissa punched through snow into a creek and ended up spending the night out in the cold, with her feet bare. She suffered severe frostbite on both feet and had to have eight of her toes amputated. This is the never-before published full account of this accident and their rescue from the mountains, as well as numerous other adventures in the mountains including: the author's successful quest to complete all 54 Colorado 14ers; climbs of Mt. Rainier, Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Grand Teton, Denali, and Ecuador's Antisana and Cotopaxi.
