About this title

Synopsis:

Set a world record making a first ascent in winter in the Himalaya, climb and ski over 5 passes about 22,000 feet high, wander off the only map and get truly lost in Tibet before the time of GPS, live in caves for days without food, get lost again in Nepal looking for civilization, on this eduro expedition of 4 months at high altitude on the Everest Grand Circle expedition. This expedition book is written by the lone female on the expedition in tandem with the other co-leader, Ned Gillette. This enlightens the reader about both male and female points of view as the voices alternate throughout the book, sometimes describing the same event, quite differently. Find out who makes it all the way around Everest, in the first ever, record setting expedition, and who does not!
