Publishers Description: It happened in 1988, and a man named Jim Hayhurst was there to witness it. Two men died trying to climb Mount Everest. They died because they failed to understand themselves and their goals. They attempted a climb that was not for them. They were not on the right mountain. The Right Mountain is Jim's story of that climb. It is a riveting account of how traditional definitions of success can break down and what can be done to improve them. As part of the 1988 Canadian Expedition to Mount Everest, Jim experienced first hand the monumental challenges involved in climbing the world's highest mountain. He takes you on that expedition, across surging rivers, over treacherous ice fields, and up mountains where temperatures dip to 60 below and winds gust to over 160 miles per hour. He describes the life-threatening experiences that affected each member of the team, the critical choices that had to be made, and the lessons that were learned as a result. More than an adventure story, The Right Mountain is a graphic illustration of what it means to be successful. Not just in terms of short-lived victories. But in terms that are right for the individual, that lead to sustained success and real satisfaction.
