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.

Entertaining and Deeply Insightful

Kit's passion for climbing and skiing is beautifully depicted in this amazing adventure. What I appreciated most was the backstory woven throughout the book explaining some of where and how she found the determination to set out on her quest and the strength to persevere through remarkable challenges. The lessons in this story are transferrable to those seeking great adventure and to those simply looking to live a fulfilled and peaceful life while pursuing whatever endeavor they choose.

Highly recommended!

Inspiring and intriguing

Good read for any ski mountaineer looking for a fun and interesting story. It’s a great book for the skin track. Motivating and, especially as a female skier, inspiring.
