In this moving and adventure-packed memoir, Erik Weihenmayer begins with his gradual loss of sight as a very young child. He goes on to chronicle his young adulthood, including his teaching career and his passion for climbing such mountains as Mount McKinley, Kilimanjaro, and, famously, Everest. Weihenmayer tells his extraordinary story with humor, honesty and vivid detail, and his fortitude and enthusiasm are deeply inspiring.

Recently, Erik has taken on his most ambitious mountain yet: training blind teenagers to do what he does. Learn more about this project, in which Erik and his Everest teammates will climb a Himalayan peak with six blind Tibetan teens. Go to to interact with the expedition team, find exciting activities about braille, and more. (National Braille Press is proud to have donated braille books for this adventure.)
