Description


"“... refreshingly free of the hubris that marks
much adventure writing ... The reader never feels assaulted
by Kobalenko’s daring, only inspired by it. ”"
—THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
The Horizontal Everest brings to vivid, awe-inspiring life one of the most forbidding,
arresting, and beautiful places on the planet: Ellesmere Island-a virgin wilderness that
author and photographer Jerry Kobalenko has traversed more than anyone else in history.
"“... charming and refreshingly honest ...
a portrait of remarkable people and harsh landscapes,
and the siren-like allure of both. ”"
—SIMON WINCHESTER, The Map That Changed the World
"“... a compelling portrait of a harsh yet inviting place ... wonderful ... ”
" —KENN HARPER, Give Me My Father’s Body
"“The ... stories fill me with passion and dreams. ”"
—BORGE OUSLAND, Arctic expeditioner
JERRY KOBALENKO is one of the world’s premier Arctic travelers. His writing and photography appear in such magazines as "Conde Nast Traveler," "Canadian Geographic," and "Outside." When he is not on an extreme journey, he lives in Canmore, Alberta, with his fellow adventurer and wife, Alexandra.
