Detailed Product Description

MULTIPLE COPIES AVAILABLE

2003, 1st edition. 164 pp, photos. This is the magic time for Himalaya climbing, even ordinary climbers like the author can do first ascents. This describes a British team that first ascended a 6160m peak in the Indian Himalaya in 2001. New Paperback (only edition.)

'Climb a mountain and prove to yourself you’re really alive—if you don’t kill yourself in the process!'

How do you organise a first ascent of an unclimbed mountain peak? Join Angela Benham on her first climbing expedition to the Indian Himalayas—that so nearly ended in tragedy—and find out. Share the conflicts and the fears, the frustrations and the pain. Revel in the humour and the joy, the excitement and the thrills—not to mention the innumerable meetings! Pick your way through the maze of moraine and with her reach the virgin summit of Shambhu Ka Qilla – the Fortress of Shiva. In reading Lucky To Be Alive: A First Expedition to the Himalayas you will discover what having ‘good luck’ means.

About the Author

Born in London in 1951, Angela Benham loved English Literature from an early age. Having survived meningitis at 19, she studied English at Manchester University and then taught with Voluntary Service Overseas in Thailand. She raised her family in Leicester, became interested in counselling and psychotherapy and started teaching in special schools.

An interest in rock-climbing and mountaineering was re-awoken and she became a member of the Red Rope Socialist Walking and Climbing Club. In 2001 Angela achieved her ambition of joining an expedition to the Himalayas. Lucky To Be Alive is a first publication in celebration of that experience.
