From the cover: “ Facing Up : At the age of twenty-three, Bear Grylls became one of the youngest Britons to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Having suffered a broken back only two years before in a freefall parachuting accident, he overcame incredible odds, not to mention great hardship and danger, to reach the top of the world’s highest mountain. Facing Up is the story of his adventure, his courage and humour, his friendship and faith.
Facing The Frozen Ocean: It started out as a record attempt: the first unassisted crossing of the frozen north Atlantic in an open rigid inflatable boat. But it quickly became a terrifying battle against storm-force winds, crashing waves and icebergs as large as cathedrals when Bear Grylls and his team found themselves isolated in a devastating storm 400 miles from shore. This is the white-knuckle story of their ordeal, and how they found it in themselves to survive and fight their way back to dry land.”
