Detailed Product Description
2007, 1st edition. 212 pages. At 8.15 am on 16 May 2004, Vicky Jack stood on top of the world. After seven gruelling years, she had fulfilled her ambition to climb the Seven Summits the highest peaks on the seven continents and now she had reached the top of the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest. In doing so, she became, at the age of fifty-one, the oldest British woman to climb Everest and the first Scotswoman to complete the Seven Summits challenge.

The Sky's the Limit is Vicky's story. Her desire to climb came from childhood walks and holidays in Argyll but it wasn't until her thirties that she began climbing the Munros. With them finished she set her sights on the Seven Summits and has since climbed all over the world - she's fallen off Mount McKinley in Alaska, nearly died in a blizzard in Antarctica, been chased by armed security men in Indonesia and with failing oxygen, had to abandon her first attempt on Everest. And all this from a woman who wouldn't call herself a mountaineer. 
 
She held down a high-level career in management during all her years of climbing and would say she is just a hill-walker. This book is the story of an ordinary woman who pushed herself to extraordinary heights. New hardcover, DJ.
