SIGNED by Carol Masheter

When the bottom fell out of Carol Masheters life at age 50, she took up high altitude mountaineering to cope with grief and anger. She was an unlikely climber. Afraid of heights, she also struggled with anxiety and depression. Little did she know that mountaineering would lead her to climb Mount Everest when she was 61, an age when many people want to retire and relax. 

No Magic Helicopter: An Aging Amazons Climb of Mount Everest chronicles Dr. Masheters preparation for the climb of a lifetime, her struggle to the summit, and the blind descent that threatened her life.
Carol Masheter, known as the SilverFox to her friends, has been a research chemist, a university professor in the social sciences, and an epidemiologist for public health. 

Since age 60, Dr. Masheter has summited four of the Seven Summits: Mount Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, and Mount Kilimanjaro. In her 50s, she summited, Cho Oyu and a dozen peaks over 17,000 feet in elevation in Bolivia and Ecuador. When not mountaineering, Dr. Masheter lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, and engages in outdoor activities with friends. She also enjoys yoga, meditation, the arts, and talking with interested groups about her mountaineering experiences. She supports a foster daughter in India.
