Jon Krakauer experiences a deadly week on Everest; Ian Frazier journeys along the flooded Mississippi; Sebastian Junger reports on the perfect storm; Jane Smiley recalls an adolescent adventure in foxhunting; Annie Proulx rides out in search of fun; Thomas McGuane explains his reasons for hunting; and, James Salter skis around the world. For more than twenty years the editors of award-winning "Outside" magazine have been bringing together the best in adventure travel, sports, nature writing and photography. Now they have selected over thirty essays that together comprise some of the finest non-fiction gathered anywhere, essays that take us around the world from the slums of Haiti to the jungles of Peru, from the peaks of the Himalayas to the beaches of Belize, into the heart of the wilderness and into some strange human hearts as well.
