Steve Trafton has always lived life on the edge. Whether it is shattering the world land speed record at the age of sixty-four or facing the US government in court, Trafton is always up for new challenges and adventures.

In his autobiography, Trafton takes you on some of his most harrowing expeditions. He explains how he survived a massive avalanche on a remote Baffin Island mountain and attempted to drive the 8,500-mile Paris to Peking rally in a car from 1915! Along the way, Trafton devoted much of his time to exploring the Arctic and other isolated points around the world. It was in these remote locations that Trafton learned the most about himself and his goals in life.

Not every challenge in Trafton’s life presented physical danger. He also had a successful twenty-eight-year career in banking and became one of the world’s leading experts on the mysteriously missing Sir John Franklin Expedition of the 1840s.

Trafton’s story will thrill you, but it will also inspire you to seek your own adventures! At the end of each chapter, Trafton shares some of his hard-won wisdom and the valuable life lessons he learned at the mountaintop and behind the wheel.
