David Breashears, celebrated filmmaker and member of the climbing elite, has spent his entire life preparing for the challenge of reaching Mount Everest's summit. Like myriad legendary mountaineers before him, from George Mallory to Sir Edmund Hillary, Breashears is drawn to the sure promise of adventure and unforgiving physical demands the world's highest mountain peak holds. For Breashears, climbing has never been a question of bravery -- rather, it is the pursuit of excellence and a quest for self-knowledge. And certainly, this unending determination characterizes everything in Breashears' life, from his climbing to his filmmaking.

In this most captivating of memoirs, Breashears looks back on his life -- the climbing adventures, the development of his film career, and the tragic mistakes and heroism of the now famous 1996 Everest disaster (during which nine people, including some of Breashears' closest friends, lost their lives). Moving and engrossing, High Exposure goes beyond Mallory's famous quip, "Because it's there", to find meaning and hope at the top of the world.
