Summary

Lost near lethal crevasses and cliffs in a blinding whiteout blizzard is the last place anyone would want to be… 
Windy Corner on Denali has claimed lives, fingers, and toes. What would make someone brave lethal weather, crevasses, and slick ice to attempt to summit North America’s highest mountain? Denali has claimed over one hundred lives. It seems like the place for risky adrenaline seekers. 
In this book, the author shares the lessons Denali teaches on managing goals and risks. Everyone takes chances at some time in their lives, even if it’s driving down the highway. Becoming a risk manager rather than a risk taker is what will keep you alive during difficult times. 
Experience the cold, solitude, and uncertainty of life on high mountains. Apply the message, build resilience, and overcome adversities in your life.

Each lesson plan contains four activities, plus extension ideas.This book was first published by Human Kinetics, followed by Delmar Cengage Learning in 2000 (ISBN 978-0-7668-1603-9), as part of the Moving and Learning series.

She served on the National Association for Sport and Physical Education's task force that created national guidelines for early childhood physical activity.

    Everyone knows we're a nation obsessed with runners-up and near-missers, that we find failure heroic and success boring, if not downright rude. In this hilarious, fact-packed and up-to-date compendium, vintage losers such as Ethelred 'the Unready' and Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards jostle with newcomers on the failure scene like Sir Fred Goodwin, who blithely steered RBS into the distinctly unwelcoming arms of the British tax-payer. Alongside these stellar losers are many lesser-known gems of national inadequacy, such as the actor Robert Coates, who was so bad that in 1816 several audience members injured themselves laughing -- during a performance of Rowe's death-filled tragedy The Fair Penitent. Great British Losers is a book for the twisted patriot that lurks inside us all. It'll make you laugh, and perhaps even cry -- at least with rage. In the end, it may even make you proud to be British. Well, kind of...
