Description-

  • Jordan Romero climbed Mount Everest at age thirteen—and he didn't stop there. In this inspiring young adult memoir that includes color photos, he tells how he achieved such great heights.
    On May 22, 2010, at the age of thirteen, American teenager Jordan Romero became the youngest person to climb to the summit of Mount Everest. At fifteen, he became the youngest person to reach the summits of the tallest mountains on each of the seven continents. In this energizing memoir for young adults, Jordan, recounts his experience, which started as a spark of an idea at the age of nine and, many years of training and hard work later, turned into a dream come true.
    "The emotional pitch of the story remains high as Romero contends with extreme weather, frustration, exhaustion, and homesickness to reach, with almost palpable exhilaration, each peak" (Publishers Weekly).

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books camlav - Have you been considering to read any of Jordan Romero's books? You probably haven't. If you were considering to read one of his books a good book to start out with would be No Summit Out Of Sight. If you noticed the title it's about summits/mountains and it's about a boy who looks at a mural with all the tallest mountains in the world. So he got inspired to climb all the mountains. He climbed his first mountain when he was 12. Once he tells his dad his dad wanted him to follow his dreams so they started training, struggling, and bonding on the way to climb the summits. The first mountain they climbed is in Africa and it is called Kilimanjaro. On their journey they run into lots of dangerous ice, running out of (body) energy, falling, and the agony of being cold. At the age of 15 he became the youngest person to reach the summits of the tallest mountains. His journey begins in his hometown of Georgia and he climbed mountains all over the world from 2007 to 2011. The protagonist of the book is Jordan Romero and the antagonist of the is Jordan, dad, and Karen because they struggle on there way to each and every mountain. One major conflict was the mom because she was worried about Jordan's safety and because she didn't want him to get frostbite either. Another conflict was they were in the middle of the mountain and Jordan didn't want to go any further because he was to cold and he was struggling to walk because he had no energy left. Jordan solved his conflict by resisting the cold and pushing through it. This was a very good book to read but I'm into fiction books but if you like nonfiction books this is a very good book and if you are wondering it's kinda based of a movie coming out called "Everest". But anyway read the book and enjoy.

    May 19, 2014
    Inspired by a mural in his California school depicting the highest mountain on each continent, nine-year-old Romero vowed that he would reach those "Seven Summits." Smoothly piloted by LeBlanc, this chronicle reveals how Romero, now 18, achieved this goal at a record-setting age, scaling each mountain under the guidance of his father and stepmother, professional athletes who compete in extreme adventure races. Romero sets the scene for each climb—from Mount Kilimanjaro in 2006 to Antarctica's Mount Vinson in 2011—with notes on each region's culture, people, topography, climate, vegetation, wildlife, altitude, and atmospheric changes. While informative, segments detailing trip preparation and training are (expectedly) less gripping than accounts of perilous climbing expeditions; in the most dramatic one, Romero describes being slammed by an avalanche on Mount Everest. The emotional pitch of the story remains high as Romero contends with extreme weather, frustration, exhaustion, and homesickness to reach, with almost palpable exhilaration, each peak. Photos document steps Romero's odyssey throughout the book and in a color insert. Ages 12–up.
