This book follows Nick’s first faltering steps back into the back country and his decision to set up Mastering Mountains Charitable Trust so other MS sufferers can have outdoor experiences.
And it follows his most astounding adventure yet: trekking to base camp at Everest, and — at considerable risk to his health — conquering the Himalayan peak, Imja Tse.
