Bear Grylls Synopses: Facing Up: Remarkable Journey to the Summit of Everest is a non-fiction book by Bear Grylls. At the age of twenty-three, Bear Grylls became one of the youngest Britons to reach the summit of Mount Everest. At extreme altitude youth holds no advantage over experience, and it is generally acknowledged that younger climbers have more difficulty coping with the adverse effects of mountaineering. Nevertheless, only two years after breaking his back in a freefall parachuting accident, Bear Grylls overcame severe weather conditions, fatigue, dehydration and a last-minute illness to stand on top of the world’s highest mountain. Facing Up is the story of his adventure, his courage and humour, his friendship and faith.

In Man vs. Wild, Bear Grylls demonstrates all manner of survival techniques when faced with nature’s extremes – from crossing piranha-infested rivers to fighting off grizzly bears. He shows us how, armed with the correct know-how and a determination to stay alive, all of us have the potential to beat the elements in even the bleakest of situations.
