Brian Dickinson, former Navy air rescue swimmer, faced difficult decision when he was nearly 1,000 feet from the summit of Mount Everest in a place known as the death zone. His Sherpa got sick and had to turn back. He had to decide if he would continue to push for the summit or head back down the mountain?
 
After evaluating his options, Brian chose to continue toward the summit alone. Four hours later, he reached the highest peak in the world. His celebration didn't last. After snapping a few photos, Brian radioed his team to let them know he reached the summit safely, and he would begin his descent. All of a sudden, his vision blurred, his eyes burned, and he was rendered almost completely blind within seconds.
 
He stood alone at 29,035 feet, low on oxygen, and plagued with snow blindness. Brian had to inch his way back down the mountain trusting only on his Navy survival training, instincts, and faith. In Blind Descent, Brian shares his remarkable experience on Mount Everest, demonstrating that no matter how extreme our circumstances, there is no obstacle too great for God.
