After conquering the mountains in Afghanistan, Peak Marcello goes to Myanmar, a country that has been in the grips of a brutal military regime for more than fifty years, to visit Alessia. When he's invited to climb Hkakabo Razi, one of the most isolated mountains in the world, Peak can't pass up the opportunity. But getting to the mountain will involve a four-week trek through tropical rainforests rife with hazards-from venomous reptiles and leeches to corrupt police and military. In the end, summiting Hkakabo Razi may be the easiest thing Peak does.
Roland Smith is the best-selling author of Peak, The Edge, and other critically acclaimed adventure novels for young readers. When he isn't writing, he's traveling the country, speaking at schools and events. He lives in Portland, Oregon. Visit him online at .

Details about Hkakabo Razi, flora and fauna, and climbing techniques will appeal to science and sports buffs alike." - School Library Journal "
