'Like Joe Simpson, Andrew has discovered a latent talent for writing that only a mountaineering epic seems to have allowed him to uncover. And like TOUCHING THE VOID, LIFE AND LIMB is brilliantly written and utterly un-put-down-able. If ever a tale evokes the phrase 'life affirming' then this is it.' -On the Edge magazine

'His courage, determination and sense of humour shine through the words of this remarkable book... LIFE AND LIMB is a genuinely life-enhancing read.' - Scottish Mountaineer

Jamie Andrew's survival and rescue after five nights trapped by a ferocious storm in 1999 has passed into Alpine legend. It was a miracle that he survived; but Jamie had to come to terms not only with the death of his close friend, Jamie Fisher, who died beside him - but also with the loss of all his limbs to frostbite.

Since the accident, Jamie has struggled painfully and successfully to overcome his disabilities; not only has he learnt to walk (and run) on his prosthetic legs, but also to ski, snowboard, paraglide - and even take up his beloved mountaineering again.
