Description

In 1996, while serving in the British Army, Bear Grylls broke his back in a freefall parachuting accident in southern Africa. Miraculously, he was not paralyzed. After spending months in a military rehabilitation center, Bear decided to leave the army in order to realize a childhood dream: to climb Mount Everest.Bear endured over seventy days on Everest's southeast face, and only narrowly escaped death when he fell into a crevasse at 19,000 feet. At the age of twenty-three, he overcame extreme weather conditions and months of limited sleep to reach the summit of the world's tallest mountain."The Kid Who Climbed Everest" is a personal story of courage, humor, friendship, and faith, and will inspire readers both young and old alike.show more
