Synopsis: In this book, Jamie weaves his struggle with ice and mountain amid his journey through the ruthless Empty Quarter and places the reader intimately near the Arabian Bedu. Along with over 100 glossy photos, Jamie's descriptive writing transports the reader through Everest's and Arabia's astonishing landscapes. More than this, we get through his reflective insights, a look at our own character in the mirror of a culture older than western civilization.

About the Author: Making lives adventuresome - not just his own, but others' too - is what the work and writings of Jamie Clarke are all about. From Everest's airless summit to the searing heat of Arabia's daunting dunes, Jamie Clarke's journeys and journals focus on the adventure of self-discovery. Clarke rejects the tired myth of humankind "battling nature", of exploration as "conquest". He embraces instead the notion that journeys through landscapes are explorations of the self, of culture, of what it is to be human.
