Detailed Product Description
France, 1981, 1st edition. 173 pp, color photos, map. In French. Paperback. Fine.

The narration written by Colombel and illustrated by the very original photos of David Belden tells how both have climbed mountain slopes carrying huge packs in the deep snow and braving the avalanches. Hard to guess what animates this rather frail woman born in plain circumstances who refused the training and the fought discrimination, to know where she finds the energy to carry a heavy load up to 7,200 m., but that's the point of this book.

Christine de Colombel writes with great detail and true psychological research. "Leaving to get to know each other better," she writes at a certain moment, then "Some will believe that we came to pamper our fantasies in a hushed silence," reads further. These circumstances, where one stands for a long time at the gates of loneliness and insecurity, result in destabilizing the deep structures of the brain. This is the conclusion of Christine de Colombel.
