7x7 - Seven Peaks Seven Islands
In 1999 British mountaineer Nigel Vardy lost all his toes, fingertips and suffered severe heel damage trapped overnight in a savage, life-threatening storm below the summit of Mt. McKinley, North America's highest mountain. This is an inspiring, highly-readable personal account of how he went on to climb the highest mountains on the world's seven largest islands, from the frozen Arctic to jungle-clad active volcanoes, despite his foot damage that would have crippled most of us. Nigel epitomises the life principle that "The only limits in our lives are those we accept ourselves", challenging each of us to examine our own lives and goals once again.
