From the Back Cover:

Brilliant, Colorful, Action Filled Images . . . The Story Behind the Camera As Well As in Front of It
"Tales of execution as remarkable as the photographs, John's pictures and words make it possible to say 'Thank God! Someone god it right.'"
--Gamma-Liaison photo agency, Jennifer Coley, New York

"The book's photography is exciting, fun, terrifying, and unique in the true sense of the word. As a bonus, Annerino tells a little background on the location, and weaves the intriguing stories of how he got each spectacular shot."
--Arizona Highways Magazine

"Annerino's exciting photographs cut across the genres of sports and photojournalism. His adventure is a state of mind."
--American Photo Magazine

"There is a warmth and vitality to John Annerino's photographs that I have admired for years. His work is a wonderful mix of elements: high technical crafts, beautiful places, a climber's appetite for risk, and a warm bond with his subjects. For all those who want to know how a photographer thinks and want to experience the exhilaration of wilderness adventure, I highly recommend High Risk Photography."
--Sierra Club Books

"John Annerino is one of a handful of photographers with a real empathy for the West. His work has an edge to it, reflecting the sheer size and power of his subject - a subject he treats with respect and love. This land, which is so much a part of the American psyche, now threatened by pollution, by the spread of human settlement, and by exploitation, is as raw and as exciting in Annerino's work as it is in our mind's eye."
--Newsweek Magazine
