Detailed Product Description
Canada, 2011, 1st edition. 196 pp. New paperback.

Inscribed on the title page by Margo Talbot to Sam or Tiffany.

In All That Glitters: A Climbers Journey through Addiction and Depression, world-renowned ice climber Margo Talbot shares her compelling story of healing and self-discovery amid the frozen landscapes of the planet. Rescued from the depths of drug addiction and crime by the lure of climbing frozen waterfalls, Margo rises from the brink of suicidal depression in a jail cell to being envied by a client in Antarctica for having a “dream life”. 

All That Glitters is a story of healing and redemption; a story about losing oneself, and then finding one’s way back home.

'This inspiring real-life story shows us that our lives biggest challenges can also be our greatest opportunities for personal growth, transformation, and enlightenment. Margo is magnificent!' -- BILL PHILLIPS, AUTHOR OF THE #1 New York Times Bestseller, Body-for-LIFE.

'This disarmingly frank self-portrait of a life almost off the rails is a road map to redemption.' --GREG CHILD, AUTHOR OF Over the Edge, AND Thin Air: Encounters in the Himalayas

'All that Glitters is a shining example of hope, and the words literally sizzle from the pages to one s heart. This book will save lives.' --ELAINE SPENCER, MSW, RSW, DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL WORK, RED DEER COLLEGE

'The glittering eye of the addict, the glittering gold of the drug runner, the glittering ice of the frozen waterfall any of these can kill. How did Margo Talbot survive such fatal attractions? It s one hell of a story.' -- BEN GADD, AUTHOR OF Raven s End AND Handbook of the Canadian Rockies

'This is as much or more a story of climbing from the darkness to the light as it is of climbing mountains. Climbing is hard, but this remarkable story proves that the most difficult place to find is not a distant summit, but peace within the savage terrain between our ears.' --WILL GADD, PROFESSIONAL MULTI-SPORT ATHLETE AND AUTHOR OF Ice & Mixed Climbing
