Extreme environment athlete and team firefly™ ambassador Richard Parks has released his first book ‘Beyond the Horizon’.
Beyond the Horizon follows Richard’s captivating journey from the shattering injury that ended his rugby career through to his pioneering and world first expeditions in the most extreme environments on earth.
The book, published by Sphere, an imprint of Little Brown, is personal, funny, sad and honest, offering a rare glimpse into Richard’s private life and telling the full story behind his well-publicised journey.
Fans who followed his incredible world first 737 Challenge will finally be able to read intimately the ups and downs, which led him to becoming the first person to climb the highest mountain on each of the world’s 7 continents and stand on all 3 poles (North Pole, South Pole and the summit of Mount Everest) within 7 months. Whilst more recent followers will not only learn about his 737 Challenge journey, they will see the book culminate in Richard becoming the fastest Brit in history to ski solo and unsupported from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole.
Beyond the Horizon is a tale of redemption and astonishing endurance, set against the backdrop of the most extraordinary locations on Earth.
