Here, from the ends of the earth, comes several lifetimes' worth of astonishing images that confirm how deeply adventure is rooted in our DNA. We humans need to soar through the firmament, to walk on wires across the open spaces. We need to swim with whales, bike with wildebeests, paddle among sharks. In these stunning photographs, our truant species seems full of hubris but also profoundly humble in the immense face of nature-for, as every adventurer knows, nothing makes us feel grander than to feel small. -- Hampton Sides, author of" In the Kingdom of Ice"
The Edge of the World is a thrill ride of a book, a gorgeous chronicle of wild places and the people who love them. -- Susan Casey, New York Times bestselling author of Voices in the Ocean
Adventure photography, in its finest form, takes you to the edge of your seat with a mix of adrenaline and wonder. Images of humans at play in the most improbable of places inspire us to push a little harder. The place in time each image captures is fleeting. Having excellent photographers to bring these moments to life is the essence of Outside. The best of Outside's images, the ones that scare us, the ones that allow us to reflect on the human-nature interaction, are within these pages. -- Conrad Anker, renowned alpinist and author of The Lost Explorer
These images, and the stories behind them, leave you deeply moved-and excited to dream big about your own adventures. -- Kit DesLauriers, author of Higher Love and the first person to ski down the Seven Summits
