Hawkridge announced immediate availability as of Feb. 5 of “Summit” on Amazon.com in paperback and e-book.

Harry Farthing was born in 1964 in the United Kingdom. From 1987, he enjoyed a successful career with one of the world’s largest commercial real estate consultancies. During this period, he lived and worked in the cities of London, Lisbon, Portugal and Milan, becoming managing director of the company’s Italian operations and European board director with responsibility for activities in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Bahrain and Qatar.

In 2010, he took early retirement to move with his wife to Charleston, S.C. to raise their two daughters and pursue a career in writing.

Harry Farthing has had a lifelong interest in exploration, archaeology and world history, both published and alternate. He is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and has travelled widely to extreme environments, such as the Sahara Desert, the Himalayas, the Amazon and the Arctic.

An experienced mountaineer, he has climbed extensively, including Mount Blanc and the Matterhorn in the Alps, Mt McKinley in Alaska, Shishapangma, the highest mountain in Tibet, and Mount Everest, itself. In 2010, he successfully led all 13 members of a charity climb to the summit of Kilimanjaro in Africa.

In 2011, he made a solo 7500-mile journey across North America by motorcycle that linked the Atlantic, Arctic and Pacific Oceans, and travelled 2000 miles of unpaved roads above the 60th parallel. That trip was the latest in a series of extreme motorcycle journeys that started with a ride from the U.K. to the Moroccan Sahara when he was just nineteen.

He is an accomplished public speaker and has raised millions for charity through his climbing.

His debut novel, “Summit,” marries his knowledge of world travel, adventure sports, mountaineering and modern history to create an exciting action story that is both compelling and thought provoking.

Sequels, “Kili,” about Africa and the continent’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro, and “Denali,” about Mount McKinley and the Arctic of North America, are already in the pipeline.
