In May 2014, mountaineer and scientist John All fell into a 70-foot crevasse near Everest. Though badly injured—fifteen broken bones, internal bleeding, and a severely dislocated shoulder—he took a series of videos as he struggled to climb out through the ice and snow. They went viral, appearing in newscasts all over the world and on media websites from People Magazine to National Geographic. NPR called him “a badass for science.” Yet this is only one of many adventures this Western Washington environmental science professor shares in his new book, Icefall. His stories include outrunning a wild hyena, stepping on a black mamba in the African bush, and scaling Everest, all in pursuit of his passionate exploration of the impact of global warming. More than just an adventure story, Dr. All provides dispatches from the most extreme posts on earth and lessons for how humans will need to adjust as our world continues to change beneath our feet.
