The fastest growing form of recreation today, outdoor adventure sports compel countless individuals to push the boundaries, challenge the elements, and seek out the world's most beautiful and remote regions. Rock climbing the coastal crags of Southeast Asia, free diving the freshwater caves of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, surfing a reef pass in the South Pacific, and skiing an untouched alpine chute are among the many lifestyle-defining, adrenaline-pumping pursuits chronicled in this one-of-a-kind, comprehensive volume. Through firsthand accounts by photographers and explorers, breathtaking photography, and contributions by leading commentators-including Keri Bascetta (SKI and Skiing), Amy Silverman (Outside), Julie Ellison (Climbing), Genny Fullerton (Backpacker), Aaron Schmidt (Canoe & Kayak), among others-The Art of Adventure reveals the culture, inspiration, and drive behind those dedicated to living an adventurous life.
