Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

On May 16, 2002, Phil and Susan Ershler stood atop the highest mountain in the world. Theirs, too, is a story of overcoming great odds: Susan had only started climbing in her mid-30s, and Phil, a veteran climber (and the first American to reach the top of Everest from the north face), suffered from Crohn's, a disease that would have kept most men on the ground their whole lives. When a cancer diagnosis threatened to end Phil's mountain-climbing career, the Ershlers fought back the only way they knew how. Rather than using a single narrative, the authors each contribute their own first-person accounts (which appear in differing typefaces). While skipping back and forth between narrators can be a bit jarring, the effect is to tell two stories simultaneously, which allows readers to contrast Phil's and Susan's perspectives as events unfold.
