Detailed Product Description
Wa, 2020, 1st edition. 240 pp, color photos. New paperback, (Only edition.)

SIGNED by the author Johanna Garton. Garton, who is an attorney in Colorado, actually knew Christine when they attended the same local schools in Appleton Wisconsin. 

This is a new biography of two of America's best Himalayan climbers, Christine Boskoff, who with Charlie Fowler were killed on an obscure route in China in 2006. They were attempting a first ascent of Genyen Peak, an 20,354-foot (6,204 m) mountain in Sichuan, China. Christine had already climbed six 8000 meter peaks, more than any other American woman, and matched by very few American men. Had she lived, she probably would have been only the second American to climb all 14 8000m peaks (after Ed Viesturs.) To date, only two women have climbed all 14 8000m peaks. 

This is a dramatic and inspiring adventure story based on the lives of trailblazing mountaineer Christine Boskoff and her partner Charlie Fowler. Edge of the Map traces Christine's life as a high-altitude climber and mountain guide - from a two-day climbing course while a Lockheed engineer in Atlanta to her remarkable leadership of Seattle's Mountain Madness guiding company following Scott Fischer's death on Mount Everest in 1996.

She was a rarity at the time - a woman leading otherwise all-male expeditions. Despite challenges both personal and professional, Christine persevered to find freedom and a balance with nature on the earth's wildest peaks.  In legendary Colorado rock climber Charlie Fowler she discovered her perfect partner. Edge of the Map captures each step of the pair's story, culminating in their disappearance among the remote peaks of western China and the desperate search to find them which gripped the world.
