Beyond The Limits, A Woman's Triumph on Everest
Stacy Allison became the first American woman to successfully climb Mount Everest. Her success in 1988 was more than a premiere mountaineering accomplishment it marked a turning point in her personal life. Beyond The Limits
is the account of her struggles and achievements in the climbing and mountain world and her determination to end an abusive relationship and her marriage. You will climb with her in Yosemite, Zion, on Denali, Ama Dablam and Everest as she realizes her goals and ‘goes beyond her limits.’
"Men climb mountains because they're there.' Allison...did it to see if she could measure up. And as she scales peak after peak...her self esteem soars. Braving the Himalayan death zone, the most violent blizzard in forty years, avalanches, white-outs, and being lost at 26,000 feet, Allison...conquers her own life as she conquers Everest."—Jan Goodwin, author of Caught in the Crossfire .
