Seven Summits : Frank Wells was the head of a major motion picture studio. Dick Bass had made his fortune as an energy and resort entrepreneur. In middle age, both men left home, family, and successful careers to share an impossible dream: be the first to climb the highest mountain on each of seven continents, from McKinley to Kilimanjaro to Everest. Through many obstacles, from ice storms to illness to a measurement question that threatened to discredit their whole expedition, these brave men overcome the odds to experience the sheer, exhilarating triumph of standing at the top of every continent on earth.
