This best-selling account was republished on October 15, 1998, the 20th anniversary of the day the American Women's Himalayan Expedition reached the summit of Annapurna I the world's tenth-highest mountain. The book includes a new preface, current profiles of the team members, and an up-date on women’s mountaineering.

This classic story of the history-making 1978 first American ascent of Annapurna I has been in print for 25 years. Not only did Fortune magazine chose it as one of “75 books that teach you everything you really need to know about business” but National Geographic Adventure magazine selected  it as one the “100 best adventure books of all time.”
