Book Details

The Longest Journey Begins With A Single Step

“David Lien grew up in the small northern Minnesota town of Grand Rapids and started fishing at the age of four. He shot his first squirrel when he was eight, was hunting ruffed grouse at age eleven and started deer hunting the next fall. At thirteen David killed his first deer with a Ruger .44 Magnum rifle handed down to him by his grandfather, WW II/U.S. Navy veteran John Boyce. These early hunting experiences laid the foundation for David’s later climbing and trekking in some of the world’s most remote and rugged regions, including South America’s Patagonia, Asia’s Himalayas, Australia’s Outback, and the interior of Antarctica. He’s also been to highest points in all 50 U.S. states and on the 54 highest peaks in Colorado (the 14ers). David’s worldwide travels have taken him to 36 countries on each of the seven continents. In addition, he has tackled some of the world’s highest and most dangerous mountains, including Mount McKinley in Alaska and Mount Everest in Nepal/Tibet. Lien turned back at 25,200 feet on the north/Tibet side of Mount Everest during May 2006, whereas two of his fellow expedition members died during their summit attempts.”
