A Woman's Triumph on EverestBook - 1993
BEYOND THE LIMITS--A Woman's Triumph On Everest recounts the story of Stacy Allison's climb of Mount Everest to become the first American woman to reach the summit. Stacy's skill in mountaineering was attained through experience on the highest peaks of North America, Russia, and the Himalayan peaks of K2 and Ama Dablam. After suffering a first attempt failure on Mount Everest, Stacy assumed she would not have another opportunity to climb the mountain. The journey to reach her ultimate goal--beginning with the dream, traversing through the challenges, both in her personal life and as a member of an elite climbing team--has lessons that can motivate the reader to believe that anything is possible.
