Tears in the Wind: Triumph and Tragedy on America’s Highest Peak


                 An Extraordinary True Adventure Story

“This is an incredible account of what it takes, physically and emotionally, to take on a climb like Denali. The author endured so much on that mountain, and his description is vivid and emotional. I recommend this book to anyone. You don’t have to be interested in climbing to enjoy this slice of adventure and terror. I could not recommend this book more!”– K. Hymel.

In this riveting account of an expedition to climb Denali, the author describes how a childhood fascination with mountaineering led to the adventure of a lifetime. As an average middle-aged guy, he began mountain climbing as a pastime, eventually signing on with a guided group to attempt an ascent of Denali. Formerly called Mt. McKinley, Denali is the highest peak in North America and well known for its vicious winds and dreadfully cold weather.

During an expedition that was both triumphant and tragic, the team experienced the full force of the mountain’s fury. They were forced to face life and death on terms that had a lasting effect on each of them.

This is a rare peek into a world often shrouded in glamor and mystery. More than a description of the climb, this is an introspective look at the physical and mental demands of climbing a high mountain, and it provides thoughtful insight on the impact that this amazing adventure had on Larry and his family and friends.

Come along on a journey from armchair to the top of the continent, and share in the drama of this epic journey.
