Icefall by John All. Published by Perseus

All became in internet legend when he recorded his climb out of a crevasse near Mt. Everest, a climb he made after a fall that left him with broken bone, a dislocated shoulder and internal bleeding. But this wasn’t All’s first rodeo. Traveling the world to document the rapid changes that are occurring as a result f climate change, All has been to glaciers and to jungles, been chased by a pissed off hyena, climbed Mt. Everest and stepped on a poisonous snake in Africa.  All’s journeys are fascinating in and of themselves, but the changes in our planet are the truly frightening aspects of this book. Faced with a president elect who disavows climate change, All’s book is a timely and sobering read
