'I shed a tear as I read this . . . I'll admit that I did not do so when I originally heard of her death. The difference? This book' Independent
Alison Hargeaves was one of the finest climbers of her generation.
But in 1995, she died during a violent storm on K2.
On her death she was vilified by media outrage that a wife and mother would take such extreme risks.
This is the story of a woman with an astonishing determination to be the best that she could.
A woman driven to succeed just to secure a future for herself and her family.
