Welcome to The Edge of Never.
The Edge of Never is a nonfiction book that follows the story of a young man, Kye Petersen, who travels to Chamonix, France, to ski the route that killed his famous, big-mountain skiing father, Trevor Petersen. It’s told by a has-been pro skier who joins forces with the late ABC News anchorman, Peter Jennings, to make a documentary film about the event. I set out to write a book that would stay true to mountain culture while offering non-skiers a timeless, human tale.
Here’s what a few reviewers have said about the book:
Transcending the boundaries of sport, the book tells a deeply interpersonal and moving human story. Yet Kerig stays true to the roots and core values that deﬁne the culture of skiing.
While the potential for clichéd ‘So there I was…’ adventure writing is great, Kerig avoids that pitfall with clear prose that delves into why skiers take such risks.
The Edge of Never takes the reader beyond mountains, beyond snow and ice and danger and into the heart of family.
[Kerig is] a careful observer capable of balance and fine distinction, able to celebrate a richness of life.Read more reviews and a synopsis
