À propos de l'auteur

Who is Jake Maddox? Athlete, author, world-traveler – or all three? He has surfed in Hawaii, scuba-dived in Australia, and climbed the mountains of Peru and Alaska. His books range from the most popular team sports to outdoor activities to survival adventures and even to auto racing. His exploits have inspired numerous writers to walk in his footsteps – literally! Each of his stories is stamped with teamwork, fair play, and a strong sense of self-worth and discipline. Always a team-player, Maddox realizes it takes more than one man (or woman) to create a book good enough for a young reader. He hopes the lessons learned on the court, field, or arena and the champion sprinter pace of his books can motivate kids to become better athletes and lifelong readers.

Suddenly, Amir was beginning to feel like he might lose his grip at any moment. It didn’t help that the surface he was climbing was completely vertical.

There was no place to rest. There wasn’t even a way to pause to wiggle his hands or feet to keep them from hurting.

Amir felt his breathing pick up. He was trying hard to keep control of his muscles. After all, he was just a few feet away from climbing higher than he had ever reached before.

If he reached the point he was seeking, it would be incredible. But if he failed, Amir would fall. To make matters worse, if he did fall, the ground below was solid and hard. It would not be a soft landing.

It was not his first free climb. Amir did have experience climbing without any ropes, but he had never climbed this high before.

Amir paused for as long as he could.
