The first and only woman ever to climb six of the world's highest peaks tells her story through the prism of her own spiritual voyage.

Margo Chisholm had been an overweight alcoholic with a $1,000 a week cocaine habit -- physically and emotionally unable to accept a friend's invitation to join him on a mountain climbing expedition. Years after his death, she got clean, lost weight and decided to honor his memory by attempting to climb the highest peak on each of the seven continents of the world -- a feat she almost accomplished, stopping just a few feet short of the top of Everest. More important, she achieved the inner peace that had always eluded her.
