Beyond the Comfort Zone tells the hows and whys of four extreme sports in which participants often risk debilitating injury or sudden death. Beyond the Comfort Zone is a nonfiction adventure narrative in which the unflinching character of Bruce Genereaux is repeatedly tested in friendship, disaster, near death and love. His strengths and weaknesses persist through his adventures in four extreme sports that become Bruce's armature for character development. In each sport he progresses from beginner to master of style and technique in places we all recoginze, such as Tuckerman's Ravine, Yosemite and Chile's Patagonia. Each time life choiecs must be made, and his character remains unrelenting.
