A Himalayan veteran of 25 years faces his hardest climb yet, and it's not on a mountain.

Matt Fioretti has been a high-altitude mountain guide and climber in the Himalaya for 25 years. He has spent 43 seasons in altitude. At age forty, when he was at the peak of his climbing career, he suffered with life threatening Aplastic Anemia for 4 years before ultimately receiving a bone marrow transplant. Ironically, his hardest climb was not in the high, cold, thin air of the Himalaya.

Raw and riveting Matt now needs to add "compelling author" to his many accolades. I thank you for sharing your journey with us, for your vulnerability and rawness throughout this book. I always knew you had incredible courage and a wild side but after reading this, there is a daring (naughty) side as well! I'm delighted for you that your story is out there all of us to read. This book challenged my thoughts on death; took me to the mountains of Nepal and into the depths of my dear friends adversities. Well done Matt, Namaste. Read more
