About this deal

it shows a lot of information about animals you might not know such as different snakes and many sea creatures. He tells of Karakoram, and the foothills around K2, the world's second-highest mountain, and the other Himalayan challenges of Lhotse and Cho Oyu, and of his climbing companion's fall into a crevasse on the trail of a snow leopard. In 2003, Steve moved to the BBC’s Natural History Unit, where he took his place on the long running children’s wildlife programme ‘The Really Wild Show’. Soon he was carrying business cards from National Geographic which described him as their ‘Adventurer in Residence’. He has presented on Earth Pulse on the National Geographic channel, as well as the popular BBC children's' series The Really Wild Show and the primetime BBC series The One Show and the Expedition series, where he visited remote places such as Guyana, Alaska, St Kilda and Borneo.

Next, Steve joined the Natural History Unit’s fledgling expedition team, making the first ascent of a jungle peak and dropping into a vast sinkhole in the Mulu mountains in ‘Expedition Borneo’.Each creature has a two page spread with photos and details listing why they made it onto the list, some quite surprising, others you would expect. After leaving Exeter University with a degree in English and Theatre Studies, Steve studied martial arts in Japan attaining his black belt. It all began after a rainy-day visit with his family to an exhibition of artefacts from Papua New Guinea. MOUNTAIN - A LIFE ON THE ROCKS is both a quest and a wonderfully absorbing autobiography by one of Britain's most intrepid climbers. He has had his own season of programmes on Eden television channel alongside legends David Attenborough and Bruce Parry.

He has presented on the programme Earth Pulse on the National Geographic channel, as well as the popular BBC children's' series The Really Wild Show and the primetime BBC series The One Show and the Expedition series, where he visited remote places such as Guyana, Alaska, St Kilda and Borneo.

Steve’s encounters range from famous killers such as the Black Mamba and the North American Grizzly Bear to less well known but no less deadly animals. From learning how to catch crayfish and cook up a meal from nature’s supermarket, to learning about tracking, and from kayaking with seals to rock climbing to see peregrines.
