The text offers students a uniquely focused reader of this burgeoning area of interest and provides scholars with a source book for further studies in this area.Featuring contributions from well-respected writers in the field who each also have personal familiarity of participation in adventure and extreme sports, this is set to become a classic analysis of the intersections between philosophy and extreme experiences, encompassing essential related concepts of elation, danger, death, wilderness and authenticity.
