Claire Brownsworth, rock climber and extreme sports addict, takes us on the wild ride that is her life.
'I was about to spend the night on a piece of canvas stretched on a metal frame, suspended on a vertical rock face 100 metres above the ground. Was I kidding myself thinking that this was fun?'
Claire Brownsworth is addicted to the adrenaline rush of extreme sports. And she's not a woman to let fear - or common sense - stand in the way of an opportunity just because it's life threatening, borderline insane or downright impossible. That's why she's raced full-tilt down three vertical kilometres of the most dangerous road on the planet, jumped off a cliff strapped only to a flimsy piece of fabric, or accidentally set a rock-climbing world record.
It's a big world out there, and Claire's determined to experience it to the full. Making the whole world her home, she throws herself into life and goes wherever it will take her, rushing headlong into the biggest adventure of all - falling in love.
'Big World' is an extraordinary and inspirational story about living life with no limits.
