Detailed Product Description

London, 2006, 1st UK edition. Hardcover, DJ, New 302 pp, color photos. New hardcover with dust jacket.

The inspirational story of how Jo and Rob Gambi conquered the highest mountains on all seven continents while he also battled against cancer Rob and Jo Gambi are the first married couple to complete the "seven summits" and Jo is the only British woman alive to also to have climbed Everest by the North Ridge. Their story is even more remarkable given that Rob has twice suffered from serious bouts of cancer and once came very close to death stranded high in the Himalayas. The cancer has not stopped them from living life with an incredible intensity - they have also skied to the South and North Poles, and are constantly searching for new challenges.

Jo Gambi was already an experienced mountaineer when she met and married Rob, an Australian who had never climbed before. Together they completed the climb of the seven highest mountains in each continent in record time and achieved the grand slam of skiing to the North Pole in 2005. Rob is now in remission from stomach cancer. They are currently living in West London.
