Spanning an extraordinary range of subjects and locations, these articles take us from a horrifying avalanche on Mount Everest to a volcano poised to obliterate a chunk of greater Seattle; from a wilderness teen-therapy program run by apparent sadists to an otherworldly cave in New Mexico, to the last days of legendary surfer Mark Foo. Rigorously researched and vividly written, the pieces here are unified by the author's ambivalent love affair with unruly landscapes and his relentless search for truth.
