To the Summit . / C Margo Chisholm and Ray BruceBook - 1997
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.
