Publisher's Summary

In 2006, Kit DesLauriers made history by becoming the first person to climb - and then ski - from the summit of each continent's highest mountain, the famed Seven Summits. Centered on this quest, Higher Love represents a hero's journey, rich with personal insights, life-threatening consequences, and a thrilling crescendo. Spanning seven continents in just two years, this deeply personal memoir recounts Kit's initially secret journey that would change her life forever. From braving Antarctica's bone-chilling temperatures to trudging through an African rainforest, from corn snow on the slopes of Australia to blue ice on Everest, Kit leads you up each mountain and gives you a heart-racing ride back down. This candid, fast-paced story shows how inspiration, teamwork, and honoring our true nature blazes the trail to every summit, on or off the mountain.

Loved it

This is an amazing book, I loved everything about it. I stayed up way too late listening to parts I just could not pause until morning. It is beautifully written, heartfelt, and damn, the skiing is next level too! As if the adventuring wasn’t enough to make a great book, she also tells stories about a wolf she adopted, and lets you in on yet another part of her interesting personality and history. Wonderful, would definitely recommend it.
