"Epic" is a collection of fifteen memorable accounts of legend-making expeditions to the world's most famous peaks, often in the world's worst possible conditions. Editor Clint Willis has gathered the most exciting climbing literature of the modern age into one cliff-hanging volume. As he writes in his introduction, "This book includes nothing that can't stand on its merits as prose." Reading "Epic" is like sitting through fifteen of the greatest action sequences ever filmed- but it's more than that. "Epic" is great writing- and a truly great read.
