Kneeling on the wings of Simone Moro

On 26 December 1997, the day when I was rescued, I realized several things about the role of the helicopter and pilots at high altitude. The first, and most important, is that I had saved my life

Maybe it was at the end of ' 97, the most tragic moment of his life, when fell bleeding and tumefatto fromAnnapurna, where an avalanche had ripped away forever his two companions. Or maybe it was a year later when he flew in theformer USSR on the MI-17, noisy beasts with written in Cyrillic. Simone Moro doesn't remember exactly when he shot the spark, but know for sure that what tells us in this book is an intense and overwhelming passion. Define it in words is not easy: joins the Vertigo of the flight, the lure of the highest peaks of the Earth, the challenge with oneself and the desire to help others.

But Simone has been able to put it into practice with great tangibility, of his own money buying a helicopter and organizing a helicopter rescue service in Nepal aimed mainly to local populations of the most remote valleys. His profound knowledge of the Himalayan region, his experience of climber and his pilot proficiency could and may indeed save lives, put at risk, in thatenvironment so fascinating as hostile at times, from a simple fracture or from a difficult birth. Foreword by Reinhold Messner, afterword by Maurizio Follini.
