Outdoor adventures and advice on resilience from extreme athlete Steve Gurney, author of the bestselling Lucky Legs.

Outdoor adventures and advice on resilience from extreme athlete Steve Gurney, author of the bestselling Lucky Legs.

Hard man and 9-time Coast to Coast winner Steve Gurney reckons we're cotton-wooling our kids - they need to be falling out of trees and having accidents and making mistakes so they'll know how to find their limits in later life.

In this ripping yarn of a book, Steve recounts some of his recent extreme adventures - in the Sahara, on Mount Cook, and in other remote parts of the world. He also talks about his experiences of the Christchurch earthquakes, which have impacted on him markedly.

In true Gurney fashion, this book is part riveting story and part philosophy, all told with humour and style.
