Detailed Product Description
SA, 2004, 1st edition. 142 pp, ills. In early 2003, South African journalist and broadcaster Patricia Glyn spent 59 long days with the Discovery Expedition at Base Camp on the side of the world's highest peak, Mount Everest.

Everest is famed for bringing out the best and the worst in people and as a non-climber, Patricia witnessed it all. The intense struggles, the pent up frustrations, the egos, the pain of failure and finally the ecstasy of a dream fulfilled. 'Off Peak' is an engaging study of the foibles of human nature. Written with great wit and humour, the diary is interspersed with epic mountain stories and tales of heroes of old and chronicles Patricia's very personal journey to one of the bleakest spots on earth. Paperback, only edition, New.
 
SIGNED by Patricia Glyn.
