After beating bulimia and the twin addictions of alcohol and cocaine, climbing mountains would probably seem like a walk in the park. For Margo Chisholm, author of To the Summit, her quest to become the first woman to climb the highest mountain on each continent--known to the mountain-climbing community as "the Seven Summits"--was her victory march. Traveling from Africa to Antarctica to the Himalayas, Chisholm chased her dream, scaling mountain after mountain, with only Everest eluding her.
Coauthored with Ray Bruce, Chisolm's story is an inspiring one. Even her failure to reach Everest's summit becomes a triumph of acceptance.About the Author:
Claire Rudolf Murphy has lived and hiked in Alaska for many years. This is her first novel.
