Detailed Product Description
Seattle, Girl Friday Books, 2023, 1st edition. 226 pp, color photos. New hardcover with dust jacket. 

SIGNED on the title page by Lisa Thompson

Near the death zone on K2, the world''s second-highest mountain, Lisa Thompson searched for the strength to continue climbing. Her choices were clear: give in to her doubts and descend or continue up the mountain''s steep face. Spite had provoked Thompson into the male-dominated world of high-altitude mountaineering, but spite could only take her so far. After a harrowing battle with cancer, Lisa realized she needed to understand what motivated her to take greater and greater risks in the mountains. 

Finding Elevation chronicles Thompson''s path from novice climber to world-class mountaineer, as she becomes the second American woman to summit K2, which is considered by many to be the deadliest mountain in the world. More than a climbing memoir, Finding Elevation is a deeply personal examination of motivation and the human spirit. 

It is a story of what can happen when we finally stop letting others define our limits and instead trust that we are capable of more. In this inspiring book, Thompson reaches beyond the mountain to tell a story of resilience, heartbreak, and the eventual realization that we are responsible for defining our own boundaries, finding our own happiness, and facing our fears head-on.
