Epic--a mountaineering term that evokes a sense of treacherous disaster. The climb that went wrong: fighting blinding snowstorms and horrific avalanches; days spent tent-bound running low on food, water and oxygen; surviving broken bones and shattered spirits.

With selections by Greg Child, Stephen Venables, Art Davidson, David Roberts, Robert Bates, Alfred Lansing, Charles Houston, and Maurice Herzog, Epic is a collection of the most memorable accounts of legend-making expeditions to the world's most famous peaks, often in the worst possible conditions. Epic is an adventure audiobook at its most compelling.

"The pride and thrill of achieving a summit is described vividly, both in terms of vocal inflection and vocabulary choice. The anguish over losing a climbing comrade, the despair after realizing one is lost and the hope of rescue from bad weather are found in almost every story."

Los Angeles Times
"The stories are vivid and lively."

Chapel Hill News
"Each set has a variety of four or five narrators, all of whom are excellent readers. Variety comes in the stories themselves, which portray a wide range of experiences. Many of the stories will keep you on the edge of your seat. Others will make you marvel and wonder at these crazy fools who risk their lives."

"Listeners will find it hard to turn this off before the end of any of its stories."
