Wenn Alex Honnold in eine Wand einsteigt, gibt es kein Zurück. Der sympathische 30-Jährige hat die puristischste Form des Kletterns, ohne Seil und Sicherung, in neue Dimensionen geführt. Nun blickt der Star der Szene auf die Highlights seiner Karriere zurück, wie die 400 und 900 Meter langen Free-Solo-Begehungen von »Moonlight Buttress« in Utah und »The Nose« im Yosemite-Nationalpark sowie die »Fitz Traverse« im Alpinstil mit Tommy Caldwell in Alaska. Er verrät, wie er den Spagat zwischen Abgrund und Privatleben schafft. Und erklärt eindrucksvoll, warum Risiko oftmals auch Gewinn bedeuten kann und wie man in Extremsituationen fokussiert bleibt.

Guilt mingles with relief, leaving Drizzt uniquely vulnerable to the persuasions of his newest companion--Dahlia, a darkly alluring elf and the only other member of their party to survive the cataclysm at Mount Hotenow. But traveling with Dahlia is challenging in more ways than one. As the two companions seek revenge on the one responsible for leveling Neverwinter--and nearly Luskan as well--Drizzt finds his usual moral certainty swept away by her unconventional views. Forced to see the dark deeds that the common man may be driven to by circumstance, Drizzt begins to find himself on the wrong side of the law in an effort to protect those the law has failed. Making new enemies, as his old enemies acquire deadly allies, Drizzt and Dahlia quickly find themselves embroiled in battle--a state he's coming to enjoy a little too much.

In 2004, Yosemite received 3.3 million visitors, 500,000 more than Yellowstone - the road guide sold more than 11,000 copies in a year. This guide is completely dedicated to driving the parks, with mileage markers and sight-by-sight descriptions. This user-friendly guide follows the major roads in Yosemite National Park with detailed maps. Along the way the guide highlights the best locations to see stunning wildlife, such as bighorn sheep and black bear, where to spot breathtaking geological formations and the sites of key historical events. The maps also clearly indicate the camping, fishing, and boating locations within the park. The book's design eliminates a major frustration of other road guides - having to count odometer mileage and flip back and forth between maps and text. Here, the text and maps are contiguous, all the visitor needs to find is the road and starting point. They can then follow the maps and descriptions as they drive along.
