Beyond Tough Times to the Top of the WorldeBook - 2013
New Altitude chronicles one woman's remarkable passage beyond tough times to the top of the world. After a devastating MS diagnosis, Wendy Booker fell haphazardly into running the Boston Marathon for charity. From that one simple act, an extraordinary series of circumstances unfolds that is nothing short of kismet. Overcoming illness and divorce, and tackling one of the toughest mountains in the world twice, Wendy finds herself atop Denali (Mt. McKinley, Alaska) in 2004 at the age of 50. That accomplishment propels her next aspiration: to climb the Seven Summits (the highest peak on each of the seven continents). Follow her inspiring, poignant, and sometimes hilarious adventures as she seeks to conquer the mountains on her list with the intimidating specter of Mt. Everest looming on the horizon, and discovers a whole new world along the way.
