Join Jeff Evans as he guides you on some of the most harrowing and satisfying life adventures you can imagine. Jeff is a mountaineering guide, emergency medicine Physician Assistant, and motivational speaker who has conquered the highest mountains on six continents and Everest more than a dozen times. He guided his friend Erik Weihenmayer to becoming the first blind climber to reach the summit of Mt. Everest. He volunteers in emergency medicine in earthquake-wracked Nepal and war-torn Iraq. And he speaks to audiences around the world about his outdoor adventures, unpacking what it means to conquer the fears and sense of peril that anyone's life challenges bring. In MountainVision, Jeff's exciting and heartwarming memoir teaches new lessons in leadership and life from beyond the summit. Over twenty-five-plus years guiding climbers, Jeff shows himself to be courageous, cool-headed, and committed to safety. As a co-founder of Soldiers to Summits, Jeff trained and guided war veterans on some of their most daring exploits. As the friend and guide of blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer, Jeff did what no one else would--come alongside someone special and find creative ways to give him the help he needed and empowerment he wanted. As a motivational speaker, Jeff inspires business, military, and civic leaders with his lessons beyond the summit, showing how he learned the basics of leadership and management on a mountain top. In MountainVision, Jeff's "tales from the trails" will take you to the Rockies and the Alaska Range, to Peru and Greenland, to the Atlas Mountains and Kilimanjaro in Africa, and of course, to Everest in Nepal. Along the way, there are adventures in Haiti and 10 weeks in Morocco on the TV series Expedition Impossible, where Jeff, Erik and Ike finish ahead of 11 other teams, none of which included a blind guy. Jeff's easy style and thrilling storytelling will satisfy and delight readers of all ages. Come on and join his adventures to the world's rooftops, right from your most comfortable reading chair.
