Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mike Hoover is an American mountaineer, rock climber and cinematographer. His first major involvement in film was in The Eiger Sanction (1975) in which he taught Clint Eastwood how to climb in the Yosemite valley before the film was shot in Grindelwald, Switzerland in 1974. He has since been a cinematographer for the documentaries To the Ends of the Earth (1983), To the Limit (1989), The Endless Summer 2 (1994) and Zion Canyon: Treasure of the Gods. In the late 1980s, he made 18 trips to Afghanistan to shoot footage of the bloody war in the country. It later featured in a program named The Battle for Afghanistan (1987). Hoover, who has been in charge of various film teams, has filmed all across the world, particularly physically and politically difficult filming locations, from the precarious rock faces of the Eiger, to filming Everest and K2, to canoeing in the Venezuelan jungle.show more
