Detailed Product Description
Canada, 2008, 1st edition. 186 pp, 43 color photos. Softcover. Fine. (only edition).

Writing with remarkable openness and passion, T.A. Loeffler recounts her powerful story of preparing for, and attempting to scale, the mighty summit of Mount Everest. With gripping descriptions and spectacular photos, she invites readers into the extreme world of high-altitude climbing.
 
The author has also climbed Denali, Aconcagua, and Elbrus, is on Kili in 2008, so she will soon complete the Seven Summits.
 
More than a Mountain is also a deeply moving account of how one woman overcame adversity to reach out to young people and show them the power of big dreams and big goals. We follow her intimate and inspiring narrative as she explores her own evolution as a mountaineer and as a practicing Buddhist. The result is a candid look at places where most of us only dream to tread. 

T. A. Loeffler, Ph.D. is a unique combination of outdoor adventurer, author, filmmaker, photographer, educator, and motivational speaker, bringing a diversity of experience and expertise to everything she does. Her work and adventures have taken her to 35 different countries and five different continents. TA has received international and national recognition for her innovative teaching and motivational speaking.
 
In 2006, The Globe and Mail named TA, A Class Act and she received the Association of Atlantic Universities Distinguished Teaching Award. The Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women in Sport named TA to their 2006 Top Twenty Most Influential Women in Canadian Sport and Physical Activity List. Additionally, TA received the Memorial University Presidents Award for Distinguished Teaching in 2005 and the Association for Experiential Education presented named TA, the Outstanding Experiential Teacher of the Year in 1999.
