View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This title explores what happens to our bodies and minds in the perilous last moments of life when an extreme adventure goes wrong. With more and more people setting out to climb nearly unclimbable mountains, swim unfathomable seas, and cut through unimaginable jungles, extreme deaths and near-death experiences are filling the news. Peter Stark's book is a synthesis of adventure and science, anecdote and history, confronting, among other conditions, malaria, dehydration, scurvy, heat stroke and falling from a very great height.
