The mountain is a unique school of life. In this book, Sebastián Álvaro and Jose Mari Azpiazu collect the best reflections of renowned mountaineers, arising from favorable or adverse situations, often extreme but always unforgettable, that allow us to understand existence as it is: full of joys and difficulties, passions and failures. The experiences shared here, accompanied by the planet’s most moving photographs, encourage us to leave behind apathy and sadness, to develop the strength of the spirit, to trust in our values, to face obstacles without fear, in short, to live the adventure of life in all its fullness and intensity.
