by Brad R. McQueenIn May of 2001, the author and his wife and father were stranded overnight on Mount Evans during a freak late-spring blizzard. Melissa punched through snow into a creek and ended up spending the night out in the cold, with her feet bare. She suffered severe frostbite on both feet and had to have eight of her toes amputated. This is the never-before published full account of this accident and their rescue from the mountains, as well as numerous other adventures in the mountains including: the author's successful quest to complete all 54 Colorado 14ers; climbs of Mt. Rainier, Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Grand Teton, Denali, and Ecuador s Antisana and Cotopaxi.
Brad & Melissa are donating 50% of profits to four outdoor non-profits: 1) Alpine Rescue Team (the SAR team that came to their aid), 2) Colorado Fourteeners Initiative, 3) Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado and 4) Big City Mountaineers.
