2018 Colorado Book Awards finalist in Creative Nonfiction, and National Bestseller and Honorable Mention Award Winner in the Outdoor Literature category of the 2017 National Outdoor Book Awards (NOBA) — “A beautiful book about family and finding a way to achieve more than you ever thought possible.” —Brad Meltzer, NYT bestselling author Erik Weihenmayer is the first and only blind person to summit Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. Descending carefully, he and his team picked their way across deep crevasses and through the deadly Khumbu Icefall; when the mountain was finally behind him, Erik knew he was going to live. His expedition leader slapped him on the back and said something that would affect the course of Erik’s life: “Don’t make Everest the greatest thing you ever do.” No Barriers is Erik’s response to that challenge. It is the moving story of his journey since descending Mount Everest: from leading expeditions around the world with blind Tibetan teenagers to helping injured soldiers climb their way home from war, from adopting a son from Nepal to facing the most terrifying reach of his life: to solo kayak the thunderous whitewater of the Grand Canyon. Along the course of Erik’s journey, he meets other trailblazers—adventurers, scientists, artists, and activists—who, despite trauma, hardship, and loss, have broken through barriers of their own. These pioneers show Erik surprising ways forward that surpass logic and defy traditional thinking. Like the rapids of the Grand Canyon, created by inexorable forces far beneath the surface, No Barriers is a dive into the heart and mind at the core of the turbulent human experience. It is an exploration of the light that burns in all of us, the obstacles that threaten to extinguish that light, and the treacherous ascent towards growth and rebirth.

I have noticed in visiting with folks far and near that there were those who were "stuck" in old doctrines and traditions of teachings that denied basic understandings of the true nature and purposes of God as well as their own God-given power and ability. They were held under the influence of those who watered down the truth to fit the human condition rather than elevate the human condition to fit the truth. While others, perhaps more progressive in their knowledge of truth, suffered under the phenomena of knowing far more than their ability to apply it to daily living. They felt defeated, crushed and confused. In their quest for something real and true they often missed some very basic understandings and experiences along the way. I have come to call this "throwing the baby out with the bath water." This is throwing out the good and needful with the bad and confining. Both camps of spiritual thought needed foundational repairs and restructuring. A house cannot stand if parts of the foundation are missing. The desire to bring the best of both worlds together and preserve the truths each have, as well as the desire to see us all live and understand to our highest potential is what has motivated this book.
