I received this book this week from Powell’s at for $1. I love out-of-print finds for bargain prices and collect books about mountaineering, trekking, pilgrimages and plain old long walks.

Forrester writes about her attempt(s) to trek to Everest Base Camp as well as to the Annapurna Sanctuary and other notable sites. She is also an avid ornithologist. And did I mention she was still trekking the Himalayas at the age of 72 !?

How beautiful and charming. Breathtaking cover. I wish you were here and I was, too!
