New Altitude chronicles one woman’s remarkable passage beyond tough times to the top of the world. After a devastating MS diagnosis, Wendy Booker fell haphazardly into running the Boston Marathon for charity. From that one simple act, an extraordinary series of circumstances unfolds that is nothing short of kismet. Overcoming illness and divorce, and tackling one of the toughest mountains in the world twice, Wendy finds herself atop Denali (Mt. McKinley, Alaska) in 2004 at the age of 50. That accomplishment propels her next aspiration: to climb the Seven Summits (the highest peak on each of the seven continents). Follow her inspiring, poignant, and sometimes hilarious adventures as she seeks to conquer the mountains on her list with the intimidating specter of Mt. Everest looming on the horizon, and discovers a whole new world along the way. Wendy Booker is an “accidental athlete” whose journey of self-discovery, serendipity and stubbornness will leave readers laughing, crying, and seeking their own mountains.

About the Author:

Wendy Booker is on an amazing journey. Not only is she tackling marathons, mountains, and ice... she’s doing it with multiple sclerosis at the age of 58. Diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS in 1998, Wendy was never an athlete. But over the past decade she has run ten marathons, climbed 6 of the Seven Summits, attempted Everest twice, mushed to the North Pole and skied to the South Pole – setting records and breaking through barriers all the way. Always on the lookout for her next great adventure, she is now training for the Iditarod in Alaska. Wendy lives in Beverly Farms, MA and is the mother of three grown sons and a yellow lab named Cada. This is her first book.
