The inspiring autobiography of Lynn Hill, a Californian girl who has been hailed as the world's foremost female rock climber - and indeed as one of the greatest climbers of either sex that the sport has ever known. She captures the thrills of the climb and demonstrates the physical and mental courage needed to make a safe path up a cliff so that the climber can enjoy the gymnastic play between the human body and steep stone. All armchair adventurers will enjoy reading about her extraordinary exploits which include becoming the first person to free-climb Yosemite's famous 3,000-feet Nose. Even those of us who only tackle steep hills behind a wheel will appreciate the spiritual satisfaction gained by those who risk life and limb in search of raw excitement.
