What do Mounts Elbrus, Everest, Kilimanjaro, Kosciuszko, Denali, Aconcagur and Vinson have in common? Known as the “Seven Summits”, they are each the tallest mountain on their continent.
Very few people have climbed all of the Seven Summits, where dangers such as falls, accidents, avalanches, frostbite, hypothermia and acute mountain sickness can happen at any time.
Jordon Romero of Big Bear Lake, California, has accomplished something very remarkable in his life. He has climbed all of the Seven Summits ... by the age of fifteen! As you might guess, he is the youngest person in the world to have done so.
At age 13, Jordan also became the youngest person to climb Mount Everest.
What motivated Jordan to set such an enormous goal ... and how he was able to achieve it – one mountain at a time – are the subjects of this inspiring, true story of determination and perseverance against all odds.
Today not only is Jordan in the process of climbing the highest peak in each of the fifty States, but he also visits schools across the United States to speak about setting goals and achieving dreams.
