Annapurna: A woman's Place by Arlene Blum In August of 1978, thirteen women left San Francisco for the Nepal Himalaya to make history as the first Americans-and the first women to scale the treacherous slopes of Annapurna One, the world's 10th highest peak. For the start they had logistical problems, storms, hazardous ice climbing, team conflicts and the terror of avalanches. On Oct 15th, two women and two sherpas made it to the summit! This story was top-notch and very well written. I also enjoyed maps and photos that were included.
