Overview

Stacy Allison was the first American woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest. She has climbed the Himalayan peaks K2 and Ama Dablam, as well as the highest mountains in North America and Russia. Hers has been a life of setting lofty goals and achieving them through years of rigorous preparation, determination, and courage. She recounts her setbacks and eventual triumphs in a book that is both gripping and deeply reflective.

In Many Mountains to Climb Stacy Allison shares her exciting stories and her reflections on the lessons for life that she has drawn from them. Every reader will respond to her thoughts on facing self-knowledge, danger, and fear and emerging stronger. Climbing great mountains is a complex team effort over months, and Stacy Allison describes the team dynamics of people facing extremes of stress in their environment, their bodies, and their minds. She then brings these acute observations into the everyday sphere of work and family. This remarkable book combines high adventure, fascinating characters, and a uniquely wise perspective. Anyone who faces a challenge will draw new energy from reading it.
