Book Review: “Higher Love” by Kit Deslauriers

Higher Love: Skiing the Seven SummitsHigher Love: Skiing the Seven Summits by Kit DesLauriers

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have been a mountain climber since the age of 8, in 1952 when I first went up 10,110 ft. Mt. Blackmore outside of Bozeman, Montana with my father. That introduction to the heights has stayed with me spiritually for all these years. As such, I love Kit’s descriptions of both her he athletic feats on the mountains she climbed and skied, as well as her spiritual trip, especially on Everest. What always amazes me is the ability of the extreme mountaineers to withstand the cold, hunger, altitude sickness and drain if energy for not just one or two days, but for weeks on end. Kit’s expenditures of energy, the deprivations and necessity to endure on Denali and Mt. Vinson are certainly equal to or greater than the obstacles of Everest. Her feat is simply amazing, and a real model for mountaineers of all ages for all time! The dedication of Kit’s husband Rob to her goals and project is also a model for partners in marriage who need to support one another to achieve individual and joint goals. I will read this book again to re-live the high points of her journey. A great book!
