My mother got this book for my father for his birthday. The few stories I was already able to read were exciting and informative. Two of the stories in the book are actually written by my 46er correspondent, Brian Hoody! One of my favorites so far was about a 76 year old man who needed a week to recover from climbing Cascade but then built his strength and endurance by climbing, went on to become a 46er at 82 years old and was eventually told by his doctor that he had actually reversed the aging process. Anecdotal about the places we've been, Informative about the mountains we have left to do and Inspirational from the people who've gone before us.
