from a hardcore male mountaineer One gets the clear impression that hea hardcore male mountaineer One gets the clear impression that he Zu schnell learned a wholeot since his stereotypical teenage boy years which he describes some of in the book It s a superb story that gives its due to the spiritual nature of climbing the mountains of Tibet and nearby and the feelings of people who are passionate about them and those who ove them and get hurt just as badly when it goes wrong Below Another Sky was a great surprise the first book in A While That I while that I wasn t able to put down In fact I think I got sunburned from staying outside too ong to finish itThat said I don t know if I d describe it as an enjoyable read It s probably accurate to call it a bittersweet read The subject matter is heart wrenchingly poignant A relatively famous mountaineerfilmmaker returns to the scene of the death of his friend 20 years ater only this time he is bringing along his friends daughter This reads ike a personal journal and in many ways I suppose it is Ridgeway eaves it all out in the open and I respect how honest he is in the book He constantly uestions why he d Part travel story part a man s memoir part a young woman s story to restore a piece of herself that s missing because she never knew her dad I oved reading this book partly because of how.
