Description: From the frozen gullies of the Scottish highlands to the sunless depths of California's longest cave, Atlantic Monthly contributor Todhunter writes about so-called extreme sports from the inside. With the self-effacing gumption of a young George Plimpton or Tim Cahill, Todhunter is not content to interview his subjects from the safety of sea level. Instead, he climbs, paddles, dives under the ice, crawls through caves, and leaps from cliffs in the company of some of the world's premier outdoor athletes.

Although there are tragedies in this collection, "Dangerous Games" is no mere litany of disasters; "I prefer to write about the living, " says Todhunter. "I want to know what pushes them to their own edge and what brings them back."

Here are nonsporting stories as well: The Taming of the Saw, " an essay about learning to use a chainsaw in New York's Catskill Mountains; "The Wreck of the Belle, " recounting a week spent with nautical archaeologists diving for a seventeenth-century French shipwreck; and finally, "Winter Passage, " Todhunter's account of an Atlantic crossing, in January, on a German freighter.

Beautifully written and meticulously reported from the front lines of America's obsession with risk sports, "Dangerous Games" is a classic collection of adventure tales from one of America's finest outdoor writers.
