Life lived wild Adventures at the edge of the map

Rick Ridgeway

Book - 2021

At the beginning of his memoir Life Lived Wild, Adventures at the Edge of the Map, Rick Ridgeway tells us that if you add up all his many expeditions, he's spent over five years of his life sleeping in tents: "And most of that in small tents pitched in the world's most remote regions." It's not a boast so much as an explanation. Whether at elevation or raising a family back at sea level, those years taught him, he writes, "to distinguish matters of consequence from ...matters of inconsequence." He leaves it to his readers, though, to do the final sort of which is which."--Amazon.
