On May 10, 1996, Lene Gammelgaard became the first Scandinavian woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest. But a raging storm and human error conspired to turn triumph into catastrophe. Eight of her team's climbers, including its renowned leader Scott Fischer, perished in a tragedy that would make headlines around the world. In her riveting account, Gammelgaard takes us from her weeks of determined training to the exhilaration of arriving in Nepal to the arduous climb and deadly storm that forced her and her fellow climbers to huddle throughout the night, hoping to stay alive. Gammelgaard also writes movingly of Everest's awesome beauty; of the passion and commitment required to face the daunting challenge of climbing to high altitudes; and of the complex personal relationships forged in the pursuit of such dangerous ventures. Arlene Blum, author of the classic account of women and mountaineering, Annapurna: A Woman's Place, calls Climbing High "an honest and deeply personal account."

As the Apostle Paul constantly strived toward greater attainment in the service of the Lord, so must we accept the challenges of reaching upward and climbing higher spiritually if we are to achieve the goal of maturity in Christ that is always before us. In a quest for guidance to accomplish this growth, we can encounter many different views about life that can leave us confused and still searching. It is important that we realize that God is the author of life and that through Him and His word we can find growth that will give true joy and satisfaction. This book provides biblical ideas that I am excited to share with you and confident you will find helpful for your spiritual growth. B.T. Prince, Jr., a retired businessman, is a deacon, outreach volunteer, lay minister, and evangelist at Carmel Baptist Church, Matthews, NC. As a volunteer evangelist, he has traveled to many areas of the world and has encountered many people plagued with misunderstanding on a variety of spiritual matters. Many of these matters are ones that he faced at different times throughout the years which had to be biblically researched in order for the correct answer to be applied. When seeking solutions, it is important to realize that opinions fade quickly when confronted with the facts contained in God's word. As we discover His truths, we are motivated to a higher standard of Christian maturity and obedience.

Creatures from another time, volcanic mountains five million years old, Indian tribes surviving from the pre-Inca period, jungles and rainforests: Ecuador has all this and more. Only in its Galapagos Islands did Charles Darwin discover such a variety of extraordinary fauna that on his return to England he wrote his groundbreaking On the Origin of Species. With a philosophical yet humourous approach, Neville Shulman provides an in-depth background to Ecuador and its diverse peoples and tells intriguing stories of spectacular creatures and exotic flora, many not found anywhere else in the world.

Climbing plants, including lianas, represent a fascinating component of the ecology of tropical forests. This book focuses on the climbing plants of West African forests. Based on original research, it presents information on the flora (including a checklist), diversity (with overviews at several levels of integration), ecology (distribution, characteristics in relation to environment, their role in forest ecosystems) and ethnobotany. Forestry aspects, such as their impact on tree growth and development, and the effects of forestry interventions on climbers are also covered.
