Biography & Memoir • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Silvia Vasquez-Lavado is a Latinx heroine for our time. She narrates her journey of self-discovery and mentorship as the leader of a group of novice female climbers to the world's highest base camp on Mount Everest with a zest that is addicting. Vasquez-Lavado draws us in from the first moment of this gripping memoir. For adventurers, this is a familiar story of pushing to higher and higher altitudes, told from a unique angle in a strong feminist voice. Listeners learn of Vasquez-Lavado's hard-won success in the technical world and of her experience hiding her sexuality and a past assault from friends and family. Her journeys--both metaphorical and actual--are spellbinding through her very last chapter. M.R. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2022]
