Un athlète et une personnalité hors du commun ! Kilian Jornet est né en 1987, il passera les premières années de sa vie au refuge du Cap del Rec où ses parents sont gardiens de refuge. Dès son plus jeune âge, il s’intéresse au ski et à la haute montagne. A cinq ans, il effectue déjà l’ascension de l’Aneto et des Posets. A dix ans, il effectue la traversée des Pyrénées et son premier “4000”. Aujourd’hui, il est quatre fois champion du monde de skyrunning et triple vainqueur de l’Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc. Mais il n’est pas avide que de performance et de podium, et c’est ce qu’il nous confie dans cet ouvrage. Courir ou Mourir est le journal de bord d’un gagnant, une philosophie de vie, une leçon exemplaire pour nous tous, où Kilian nous en dit un peu plus sur son mode de vie et sa passion de la course.

As the lambent light from the slumbering fire dances across the roof of the cave, a young girl wakes from a dream. Kec's dream tells her that her clan is in jeopardy, and that Mother Earth expects her to do something to save her people. A magic child will be sent to help her.Far away, Strong Branch, a powerful Shaman of his people, has his own dream. The Great Spirit sends him a warning about a future of conflict and killing.Kec's people are very simple, but they are strong and powerful enough to have survived the ice ages of Pleistocene Europe, by force, for over one-hundred-thousand years. Strong Branch's people are late comers from an alien world far to the South. They bring an advanced technology that allows them to utilize the environment in ways Kec's people never could.As the population of the aliens has grown over a period of more than twenty-thousand years, the stress on the environment has become critical. Kec and Strong Branch must play their parts in a microcosm of the greater struggle for survival. The conclusion of their struggle will establish a new story and a new history for each of their peoples.

It is 3289 when rumors of unusual people living in caves far from his land attract the attention of warrior leader Warlog. His shaman, Rayloc, fears the strangers are servants of evil determined to destroy his way of life. Meanwhile, Sotif, History Man of the Alliance between Earth People and Sun People, tries to guard his culture against changes that could induce Mother Earth to withdraw her blessings--while Warlog focuses on severing that alliance, which has lasted for hundreds of generations, by subjugating the Sun People and destroying the Earth People. Faced with this threat, Sotif races to find the Spirit Fire to help his people defeat Warlog. But the key to success lies in the hands of Tincolad, one of Warlog's warriors who has been captured by the Alliance. Now only time will tell if Sotif can persuade Tincolad to help find the Spirit Fire in time--as the fate of the Earth People hangs in the balance. The second book in a trilogy about the interaction between Neandertals and Cro-Magnons, Spirit Fire presents an epic adventure that sweeps across prehistoric Europe, Asia, and Alaska, as the man who invented war embarks on a quest to conquer the world.

Shortlisted for the 2014 William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award National Geographic Adventurer of the Year 2014 "The most dominating endurance athlete of his generation." -- The New York Times An exceptional athlete. A dominating force. An extraordinary person. Kilian Jornet has conquered some of the toughest physical tests on the planet. He has run up and down Mt. Kilimanjaro faster than any other human being, and struck down world records in every challenge that has been proposed, all before the age of 25. Redefining what is possible, Jornet continually pushes the limits of human ability, astonishing competitors with his near-superhuman fitness and ability. Born and raised at 6,000 feet above sea level in the Spanish Pyrenees, Jornet climbed an 11,000 foot mountain -- the highest mountain in the region -- at age 5. Now Jornet adores the mountains with the same ferocity with which he runs them. In Run or Die he shares his passion, inviting readers into a fascinating world rich with the beauty of rugged trails and mountain vistas, the pulse-pounding drama of racing, and an intense love for sport and the landscapes that surround him. In his book, Jornet describes his record-breaking runs at Lake Tahoe, Western States 100, Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc, and Mount Kilimanjaro--the first of his ambitious Summits of My Life project in which Jornet will attempt to break records climbing the highest peaks on each continent. In turns inspiring, insightful, candid, and deeply personal, this is a book written from the heart of the world's greatest endurance runner, for whom life presents one simple choice: Run. Or die. "Trail running's first true breakout star, [Jornet] has yet to find a record he can't shatter." -- Runner's World
