“Part love-story, part high-octane adventure, this historical novel about doomed Everest climber George Mallory is a tough one to put down.”People

“[An] absorbing, book-club ready first novel. A-”Entertainment Weekly

“[A]s heart-pounding as anything in Into Thin Air—and the tension is lamost unbearable, even if we know the outcome. . . . Above All Things, finally, rises to the historic, even mythological occasion. Rideout’s powerful prose about a tragic, brutal end will ahunt you.”—USAToday.com

“This magnificent novel, at once rugged and sensual, elaborates on George Mallory’s assault on Everest in 1924, the ones who went, the ones who waited. Deeply felt, richly imagined, immaculately styled, and utterly compelling, Above All Things takes us to the heights of human experience and endurance, both in physical fortitude and erotic longing. Rideout brings us to the summit and back down, shaken but somehow saved by grace.”Robert Goolrick, author of A Reliable Wife and Heading Out to Wonderful
