Overview

Itching for a challenge when she turned 60, Jane Bertrand set out to reach the highest point of each state. Her strategic mistake was to start with the easiest ones, leaving the most strenuous for the end of this decade-long quest. She recruited over 50 family members, colleagues, and childhood friends to join her in making this the experience of a lifetime. ''If there is such a thing as a Fountain of Youth, Jane Bertrand may have driven, hiked, climbed, and yes, even stumbled upon it as she pursued her dream of visiting the highest spots in each of the 50 U.S. States. Travel with her across the country to discover both physical and mental strength she didn't realize she had and a new perspective from the highest places, both literally and figuratively.'' -Diane Winger, co-author with Charlie Winger of Highpoint Adventures - the complete guide to the 50 state highpoints and completer of 49 state highpoints
