Barbara "Bobbe" Belmont, the girl from Midnight Express, grew up on suburban Long Island. After graduating from a convent college in 1968, she turned her back on tradition and roamed the globe, immersing herself in a radical, often dangerous world of sports and travel. Filled with vivid descriptions of wild and remote places, Dangling Without a Rope is a one-of-a-kind reader's feast. A determined explorer of the unknown, Belmont takes you on a rollercoaster ride of risk, disaster and survival. Accounts of glacier traverses in Switzerland, sled dog racing in Alaska, ascending a 'forbidden' volcano in Indonesia, roaming the wilds of Nepal, encounters with grizzlies and jaguars keep you holding on for dear life with Bobbe. Throughout the book she also explores her inner landscape: Her evolution as a woman and spiritual seeker is woven intimately and honestly into her accounts. Dangling Without a Rope, A Life Discovered, is a gift to both the adventurer and the adventurer at heart. A woman a generation ahead of her time in an era when adventure was not yet a packaged commodity, Bobbe Belmont leads you on an exploration you will never forget, as she reminds you of the unlimited possibilities of life.
