What does it take to be one of the world's best high-altitude mountain climbers? A lot of fundraising; traveling in some of the world's most dangerous countries; enduring cold bivouacs, searing lungs, and a cloudy mind when you can least afford one. It means learning the hard lessons the mountains teach. Steve House built his reputation on ascents throughout the Alps, Canada, Alaska, the Karakoram and the Himalaya that have expanded possibilities of style, speed, and difficulty. In 2005 Steve and alpinist Vince Anderson pioneered a direct new route on the Rupal Face of 26,600-foot Nanga Parbat, which had never before been climbed in alpine style. It was the third ascent of the face and the achievement earned Steveand Vince the first Piolet d"or (Golden Ice Axe) awarded to North Americans. Steve is an accomplished and spellbinding storyteller in the tradition of Maurice Herzog and Lionel Terray. Beyond the Mountain is a gripping read destined to be a mountain classic. And it

"Hoppy is gone! What will we do?" My father replied. "Well, we just have to search for him." "Well, I'm sure he'll turn up in due time." There it was, the final anticipation that he would come home! However, I didn't buy it! Off to my room I went - dejected and devoid of all hope. The tears came quickly in the quiet of my room. Emotion, especially tears, was an expression of feelings that were not allowed in our household. As a matter of fact, this era did not support the outward showing of emotion period! It was the philosophy that, "Grown men don't cry!" Why not? Men were supposed to be strong, masculine and reserved. Showing other emotions diminished that role. Tears were not to be shown. Hugs and saying "I love you" were rarely seen nor were they acceptable. Terry Miller was born on August 25, 1939 in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. He grew up in the small town of Thurmont, Maryland during the 1940s and 50s. He was inspired to share this memoir dealing with the struggles of climbing life's mountains; more importantly, the victories achieved along the way. It takes the reader through life's experiences that evolve into personal growth lessons and lasting spiritual strengths. Terry resides with his wife on a five acre country setting in Waxahachie, Texas with their horses and a "free range" dog named Smokey. Terry and his wife have four grown children and six grandchildren. He retired from a career in banking and is the Director of Pastoral Care in Waxahachie Bible Church.

""Phaedra" and "Iphigenia at Aulis," set in the Greek heroic age, are recastings of old familiar myths, while "Hermaios" and "Berenike" (collectively called "Beyond the Mountains") take place at the start of the Christian era, in Hellenized Bactria, in the foothills of the present-day Hindu Kush. In substance, the plays are Rexroth's personal interperation of the elemental values of Greek civilization ..."--Publisher description.
