Detailed Product Description
1996. 190 pp, photos. Bev Johnson was the leading female rock climber in the great age of Yosemite Climbing, in the 60's & 70's, and among many other firsts did the first all-female ascent of El Capitan.  The author uses mostly Beverly's letters to her parents to tell her story. Beverly wrote some truly amazing letters.
 
Her sense of humor, fun and outlook toward life comes thorough. Some interviews with friends after her death are also included. The author only touches on Beverly's life as a climber; after reading this book you can see was only one aspect of her life. Beverly comes across as a amazing woman someone whos lifestyle many can admire. I think a must read for any woman in a male dominating sport or activity.  Paperback, new condition.
