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. — Powder magazine

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. — Skiing magazine

The Edge of Never takes the reader beyond mountains, beyond snow and ice and danger and into the heart of family. — The Wasatch Journal

[Kerig is] a careful observer capable of balance and fine distinction, able to celebrate a richness of life. — The Tattered Cover Book Store
