This special new edition of Annapurna: A Woman's Place marks the twentieth anniversary of the American Women's Himalayan Expedition reaching the summit of Annapurna I. At 26,540 feet, it is considered one of the world's most challenging mountains to climb. It was on October 15, 1978, that two women and two Sherpas stood at last on the summit - but the celebration was short-lived, for two days later, two members of the second summit team fell to their deaths. The expedition's incredible journey, as chronicled by team leader Arlene Blum, continues to inspire us in this extraordinary tale of triumph and personal commitment.
