Early on in his life, Matt craved a return to nature. When he became an adult, he took the plunge to set aside his comfortable urban life and live entirely off the land to learn from the smallest and grandest of all things. In his riveting narrative that brings together epic adventure and spiritual quest, he shows us what extraordinary things the human body is capable of doing when pushed to its limits. Epic Survival, written with Josh Young, co-author of five New York Times best sellers, will relay the captivating stories from Matt's life. He will describe his time learning the secrets of running from the Tarahumara Indians that led to him running the 1,600 mile Pacific Crest Trail in just 58 days and enduring temperature swings of 100 degrees. He will take us with him as he treks into the wilderness to live alone for a half a year, armed with nothing but a loin cloth, a pair of sandals, a stone knife and chia seeds. He'll recount near-death experiences as he hikes alone through the snow drifts at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and tell us about the time he entered a three-day horse race on foot -- and finished third. Above all, Epic Survival is a book about growing closer to the land that nurtures us. No matter how far our modern society takes us from the wilderness, the call remains. Matt's story will be both inspiration and invigoration, teaching even the most urbane among us important and breath-taking lessons.

A lifetime of wilderness adventures and the resulting insights relating to nature’s intricacies as experienced by a master in the art of primitive wilderness survival. "Fire! Wake up! The shelter is on fire!" His students affectionately call him "Doc Survival." He’s Quebec’s Indiana Jones in a forest setting. Searching for the treasures of the wilderness has been his life-long quest; with passion as his only guide, he has dared to penetrate the forest on its own terms, facing increasingly difficult challenges in the hope of becoming nature’s confidant, of learning her secrets. Professor emeritus André-François Bourbeau holds a Guinness World Record for voluntary wilderness survival in the boreal forest. Herein lies his path and his stories, unadulterated: gritty and often comical mistakes punctuated by inspiring successes. What remains of this lifetime of experimentation is one man’s everlasting love of the wilderness and its intricacies, a rousing reflection on our own human priorities, and need for deep connection with the environment and other fellow beings.

Without risk, say mountaineers, there would be none of the self-knowledge that comes from pushing life to its extremes. For them, perhaps, it is worth the cost. But when tragedy strikes, what happens to the people left behind? Why would anyone choose to invest in a future with a high-altitude risk-taker? What is life like in the shadow of the mountain? Such questions have long been taboo in the world of mountaineering. Now, the spouses, parents and children of internationally renowned climbers finally break their silence, speaking out about the dark side of adventure. Maria Coffey confronted one of the harshest realities of mountaineering when her partner Joe Tasker disappeared on the Northeast Ridge of Everest in 1982. In Where the Mountain Casts Its Shadow, Coffey offers an intimate portrait of adventure and the conflicting beauty, passion, and devastation of this alluring obsession. Through interviews with the world's top climbers, or their widows and families-Jim Wickwire, Conrad Anker, Lynn Hill, Joe Simpson, Chris Bonington, Ed Viesturs, Anatoli Boukreev, Alex Lowe, and many others-she explores what compels men and women to give their lives to the high mountains. She asks why, despite the countless tragedies, the world continues to laud their exploits. With an insider's understanding, Coffey reveals the consequences of loving people who pursue such risk-the exhilarating highs and inevitable lows, the stress of long separations, the constant threat of bereavement, and the lives shattered in the wake of climbing accidents. Where the Mountain Casts Its Shadow is a powerful, affecting and important book that exposes the far reaching personal costs of extreme adventure.

"Greetings. My name's Matt Graham. I am, pound for pound, inch for inch (in all three dimensions), IQ point for IQ point, the biggest Loser I personally know. (Made it to the finals in the World Scrabble Championships and lost. Landed a writing gig with Saturday Night Live; only got one joke on the show before being canned, and the revolving door literally hit me on the ass on the way out. Joined OKCupid and received no responses after sending out more than 120 messages. You get the picture.) So starts the story of a self-proclaimed chronic failure with uncanny expertise on life's tendency to suck. This part tell-all, part confessional details all the ramblings, ravings, and score-settlings of a comedian who is too verbose for Twitter. Follow him from his childhood in the Midwest where we meet his mother, a woman with a penchant for spilling family secrets to the town drunk, and his father, a man so cheap he justifies swiping tips off tables, all the way to New York City where the ups and down of his life have given him permanent whiplash. Along the way, you'll also get Matt's insider scoop on what it was like to come up in the comedy scene in New York with people like Louis C.K., David Cross, and Marc Maron as well as a look into what it's like to be a broke comic in the city (here's a hint: sometimes you have to eat pancake batter for dinner). This Too Shall Suck-also a critically acclaimed New York International Fringe Festival show that ran for two solid years (OFF Broadway, naturally)-is Matt's unflinchingly honest look at his own shortcomings that will have you rolling with laughter at times and moved to tears at others, and probably leave you feeling much better about your own life"--
