They say cats have nine lives. Well, perhaps some of the most adventurous humans have nine, too.
Eric Jones has climbed the world’s most dangerous mountains – and even jumped off one of them!
He has flown over Everest in a balloon, and named a mountain in South America in honour of Welsh history.
Eric’s story is about overcoming our fears and reaching our goals. It helps us understand the world and the beauty it contains.
The book features a special bonus chapter on Snowdon's connections to the first successful expedition to climb Everest.
All the books in the Wales and the World set include chapter questions, a subject-specific poem, a timeline and a glossary, to assist learning and understanding.
Learning has never been so much fun – or this exciting!
