Cabelas is proud to present special guest speaker; Anthony Massey-author of The 18 Year Quest writes about his 18 year effort to the summit of all 55 of Colorado’s 14,000-foot mountains, while wearing the same pair of boots, and surviving several near-death experiences. Anthony takes you on a journey that ends as a transcendent quest, paying tribute to two fallen fellow climbers, and a newfound respect for the mountain which you are allowed to visit but never really conquer. With awe-inspiring pictures and seanachie-like stories, The 18 Year Quest creates a connection between the reader and a virtual journey of epic sights. It is filled with heart throbbing moments and deeply reflective thoughts that make oneself ask; “Why endure the pain, exhaustion and risk to keep going back to the mountains, some more than once, in order to summit them?” Anthony Massey will speak and sign for The 18 Year Quest (Mountain Man Publishing) on Saturday, March 14th at 1:00 pm at Cabela’s, 14050 Lincoln St. in Thornton.
