Beyond the Comfort Zone
Confessions of an Extreme Sports Junkie

Bruce Genereaux
Beyond the Comfort Zone—Confessions of an Extreme Sports Junkie by Bruce Genereaux

In this compelling narrative for both armchair and actual adventurers, the author explains the hows and whys of four extreme sports—class five kayaking, extreme skiing, rock climbing and adventure racing—from the perspective of his own participation. Revel in the suspense and excitement inherent in these death-defying sports, excellently and compellingly described by the author, who participated in all the activities first hand.

Kayaking tales include hair-raising descents of California's Dry Meadow Creek, Kern River, and Clavey River, Arizona's Salt River, and rivers in Chile. Climbing tales take the reader up challenging ascents of Colorado's Big Rock Candy Mountain, New York's Giant Mountain and California's El Capitan. The book's climax focuses on a marathon adventure race in New Zealand where the participants are challenged beyond their limits.

"A remarkable and engrossing mixture of high adventure and thoughtful reflection . . . a rousing good read."
~Royal Robbins, Yosemite rock climbing and international whitewater kayaking pioneer
