The Next Everest: Surviving the Mountain's Deadliest Day and Finding the Resilience to Climb Again Audiobook

The Next Everest: Surviving the Mountain's Deadliest Day and Finding the Resilience to Climb Again

Author: Jim Davidson Narrator: Jim Davidson, Tim Campbell Release Date: April 2021

This program includes excerpts read by the author. One of Atlas & Boots' Top 10 Adventure Travel Books of 2021 A dramatic account of the deadly earthquake on Everest—and a return to reach the summit. On April 25, 2015, Jim Davidson was climbing Mount Everest when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake released avalanches all around him and his team, destroying their only escape route and trapping them at nearly 20,000 feet. It was the largest earthquake in Nepal in eighty-one years and killed about 8,900 people. That day also became the deadliest in the history of Everest, with eighteen people losing their lives on the mountain. After spending two unsettling days stranded on Everest, Davidson's team was rescued by helicopter. The experience left him shaken, and despite his thirty-three years of climbing and serving as an expedition leader, he wasn’t sure that he would ever go back. But in the face of risk and uncertainty, he returned in 2017 and finally achieved his dream of reaching the summit. Suspenseful and engrossing, The Next Everest portrays the experience of living through the biggest disaster to ever hit the mountain. Davidson's background in geology and environmental science makes him uniquely qualified to explain how this natural disaster unfolded and why the seismic threats lurking beneath Nepal are even greater today. But this story is not about “conquering” the world’s highest peak. Instead, it reveals how embracing change, challenge, and uncertainty prepares anyone to face their “next Everest” in life. A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Press 'Among all outdoor pursuits, climbing mountains offers the purest, most direct challenge. Jim Davidson weaves his experiences with avalanches, crevasse falls, earthquakes, altitude, frostbite, and other Himalayan hazards into an exciting, sometimes somber introspective narrative, describing not just how he survives climbing the highest mountains in the world, but more importantly, why he must go again and again.'--Roman Dial, author of The Adventurer’s Son

Rebound: Soaring in the NBA, Battling Parkinson's, and Finding What Really Matters

Author: Brian Grant, Ric Bucher Narrator: Leon Nixon Release Date: April 2021

After twelve years of playing basketball at the highest professional level, Brian Grant could have been forgiven for thinking that the hardest part of his life was behind him, that he'd be able to kick back and enjoy the fruits of his considerable labors. But soon after his retirement from the NBA, Grant was diagnosed with Young-Onset Parkinson's Disease, ushering in a challenge greater than any he'd faced before as well as an opportunity to embrace what really matters in life. In Rebound, Grant shares his remarkable life before, during, and after those NBA years with no shortage of compassion and wit. With esteemed basketball writer Ric Bucher, Grant shares his story in raw and candid fashion, as he takes listeners to Sacramento, Portland, Miami, and beyond; to the airplane 30,000 feet in the air where he first came to understand the source of the tremors in his hand; and to the summit of Mount St. Helens alongside five others with PD, where he once again put himself to the test and defied expectations.

Get Real, Get Gone: How to Become a Modern Sea Gypsy and Sail Away Forever...

Author: Rick Page Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: April 2021

The idea that you have to be rich to travel the world on your own yacht is so universal that it goes largely unquestioned. The ubiquitous images of rich men on super-yachts sipping Martinis only help cement this image. This book hopes to change all that. Rick's recent appearance on Ben Fogle's New Lives in the Wild chronicled his budget lifestyle and adventures aboard Calypso, and introduced the idea of budget sailing to a whole new audience-an audience who may have never considered the possibility that such a dream could be made a reality, on such a small amount of money. This book is for them and for any experienced sailors who want to cast off the yoke of consumerist yachting and get back to what really matters at sea. If you are not rich, but dream of seeing our beautiful world from the deck of your own boat, this book is packed full of practical and spiritual advice to help you cut through the endless marketing and identify what it is you truly need to become a modern sea gypsy and sail away on the greatest adventure of your life . . .

Bracketology: March Madness, College Basketball, and the Creation of a National Obsession Audiobook

Bracketology: March Madness, College Basketball, and the Creation of a National Obsession

Author: David Smale, Joe Lunardi Narrator: Adam Grupper Release Date: April 2021

March Madness has become the pinnacle of college sports. Whether you're hoping your Cinderella school dances its way to the Sweet 16 or one of the millions of Americans hoping to win their office pool, it all starts with the 68-team NCAA Tournament bracket. After all, there is no true Madness without the oft-debated question about what teams should be seeded where- from the Power Five blue blood with some early-season stumbles on its résumé to the mid-major that rampaged through its less competitive conference season. The inventor of Bracketology himself, ESPN's Joe Lunardi, is here to reveal the mystery and science behind it all. While going in depth on the ever-evolving Bracketology formula, Lunardi lifts the curtain on the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee, detailing how it operates, the criteria it uses, and the data it analyzes while dispelling some of the major misconceptions. In Bracketology: March Madness, College Basketball, and the Creation of a National Obsession, Lunardi not only gives the current formula, but also compares great teams from different eras, talks to the biggest names in college basketball about their perception of Bracketology, and looks ahead to the future of the sport. After reading this book, you'll understand why your alma mater is slated for a No. 1 seed in its home state, headed to the First Four in Dayton, Ohio, or about to have its bubble burst.

Beak, Tooth and Claw: Living with Predators in Britain Audiobook

Beak, Tooth and Claw: Living with Predators in Britain

Author: Mary Colwell Narrator: Mary Colwell Release Date: April 2021

'A must read for all wildlife lovers' Dominic Dyer Foxes, buzzards, crows, badgers, weasels, seals, kites - Britain and Ireland's predators are impressive and diverse and they capture our collective imagination. But many consider them to our competition, even our enemies. The problem is that predators eat what we farm or use for sport. From foxes and ravens attacking new-born lambs to weasels eating game-bird chicks, predators compete with us, putting them directly into the firing line. Farming, fishing, sport and leisure industries want to see numbers of predators reduced, and conservation organisations also worry that predators are threatening some endangered species. Other people, though, will go to great lengths to protect them from any harm. This clashing of worlds can be intense. So, what do we do? One of the greatest challenges facing conservation today is how, when and where to control predators. It is a highly charged debate. Mary Colwell travels across the UK and Ireland to encounter the predators face to face. She watches their lives in the wild and discovers how they fit into the landscape. She talks to the scientists studying them and the wildlife lovers who want to protect them. She also meets the people who want to control them to protect their livelihoods or sporting interests. In this even-handed exploration of the issues, Mary provides a thoughtful and reasoned analysis of the debates surrounding our bittersweet relationship with predators.
