The mysteries of the world, the mystery of a human being, a young woman who goes from one hair-raising adventure to another: I felt urgent suspense reading this book, fascinated by the unusual encounters with mountains, volcanoes, Gestapo-like Irania...
the unknown, Belmont takes you on a rollercoaster ride of risk, disaster and survival. Accounts of glacier traverses in Switzerland, sled dog racing in Alaska, ascending a 'forbidden' volcano in Indonesia, roaming the wilds of Nepal, encounters with grizzlies and jaguars keep you holding on for dear life with Bobbe. Throughout the book she also explores her inner landscape: Her evolution as a woman and spiritual seeker is woven intimately and honestly into her accounts. Dangling Without a Rope, A Life Discovered, is a gift to both the adventurer and the adventurer at heart. A woman a generation ahead of her time in an era when adventure was not yet a packaged commodity, Bobbe Belmont leads you on an exploration you will never forget, as she reminds you of the unlimited possibilities of life.
