Breashears and his MacGillivray Freeman IMAX/IWERKS Everest team played a pivotal role helping to rescue climbers in 1996. In this autobiography, Breashears, IMAX ‘Everest’ director, takes us from his childhood days growing up in Greece under the dominance of his abusive father, to early climbs in Eldorado Canyon, to his first exposure to filmmaking. His work on such films as ‘Free Climb’, ‘Fall Line’, and ‘Cliffhanger’ taught him the art of filmmaking in the harsh mountain environment. Breashears intertwines his film work with accounts of his first foray to the Himalaya and subsequent climbs - Ama Dablam (1979, ‘91), Everest (1981, ‘83-’87, ‘90, ‘94-’97), Kwangde (1982), and Nameless Tower (1990). Over the course of eleven expeditions to Everest, David has reached the summit five times; qualifying him to be a charter member of Everest Anonymous.
