Some Comments from Readers:

Been reading your book….I’m speechless….I find myself reading the words, but feeling as if I’m experiencing each footstep on the mountains, seeing all the sights, and hearing all the sounds. At times I find myself so caught up in what I’m reading I’m holding my breath and very tense. The way you describe the scenes and your emotions is captivating. Congrats.

I finished your book!!! I couldn’t put it down!! Awesome!!! I laughed, I cried, I loved it!!!

I finished your book this morning and I was sad that I had come to the end, I wanted to read more! As I read your book I laughed and cried. You truly have a gift for touching people and inspiring us to appreciate life and to believe in ourselves always. Congrats!!

    Hi my name is Abigail Olford.I’m a nine year old girl.I have a dream to be a vet.I think you are going to reach your goal to climb the highest peaks on every continent.I go to St.Terasa’s.Your coming to our school to talk to us about to follow our dreams.Do you climb alone or is there someone with you?I think someone should be with you because if you get hurt you don’t have anyone to help you.

      Abigail,
      I usually climb with my teammates but on a few occasions I’ve climbed alone. I’m always careful when I am climbing whether with my team or alone. Aiming to be a vet is a big and wonderful dream. You must love animals and want to help them. Keep working hard in school, taking care of any pets you might have (if you have any), and reading books (there are lots of great animal books).

      Dylan,
      Thanks for writing and telling me about your dreams. I love to play hockey as well. I play seven times per week. It’s an important part of my training and I think it is a really fun game to play. Keep practicing your hockey skills-it takes 10,000 repetitions to get really good at something! Keep your head up and skate hard.
      TA
