"An inspirational journey by a determined character"
5 stars"

I found this book in a camping ground book swap. It has the wow factor. It follows the difficult times of the author and makes our own journey through life look easy.

Description

'Like Joe Simpson, Andrew has discovered a latent talent for writing that only a mountaineering epic seems to have allowed him to uncover. And like Touching the Void, Life and Limb is brilliantly written and utterly un-put-down-able. If ever a tale evokes the phrase "life affirming" then this is it.' -On the Edge magazine; 'His courage, determination and sense of humour shine through the words of this remarkable book...Life and Limb is a genuinely life-enhancing read.' -Scottish Mountaineer; Jamie Andrew's survival and rescue after five nights trapped by a ferocious storm in 1999 has passed into Alpine legend. It was a miracle that he survived; but Jamie had to come to terms not only with the death of his close friend, Jamie Fisher, who died beside him - but also with the loss of all his limbs to frostbite. Since the accident, Jamie has struggled painfully and successfully to overcome his disabilities; not only has he learnt to walk (and run) on his prosthetic legs, but also to ski, snowboard, paraglide - and even take up his beloved mountaineering again.

Author Biography

Jamie Andrew, who lives in Edinburgh, was a leading mountaineer for over a decade before the tragic events of January 1999; since then, he has not only resumed climbing, but also learnt to ski and snowboard again. He regularly gives lectures and speeches to mountaineering clubs and universities on his experiences, and in 2002 was the overall winner of the Lloyds/TSB Sunday Mail Great Scot Award.
