High Exposure: An Enduring Passion for Everest and Unforgiving Places
David Breashars

With a focus on climbing Everest, this book details the evolution of David Breashars from his early experience gained from climbing boulders in high school to his current reputation as one of the best-known high-altitude film-makers. Along the way, Breashars has climbed Mt. Everest four different times, often carrying a heavy film camera to the top. It also offers a different kind of perspective on the Everest disaster in 1996 which is described in Krakauer's Into Thin Air.

Winner of a Special Mention Award in the Mountain Literature category in the 1999 Banff Mountain Book Festival Award.
