    1. I have been a mountain climber since the age of 8, in 1952 when I first went up 10,110 ft Mt Black 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 an [...]

    2. Ms DesLauriers is the first person to ski the highest summit on each continent, also known as the Seven Summits In this revealing and compelling memoir, she shares her journey from inception to completion The summits include Denali, Elbrus, Vinson Massif, Kosciuszko, Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro and Everest Each presented unique challenges and skill sets, and yet she managed to finish within a two year period This is a wonderful read, offering insights into the mind of a woman who engages in dangerous [...]

    3. Kit is amazing and and inspiration to all It s wonderful to see her journey through her own eyes The book is an easy read it s gripping Once you start, you can t stop The writing is fluid and the transitions are great She does a good job describing the parts that you want to read about She s also not preachy and very modest and humble regarding her accomplishments I had a little bit of confusion with the timing of the events, but everything is well explained and goes in order The photos are stu [...]

    4. One of the most motivating books I ve ever read I m not one to boast of many female heroes but Kit is one for the ages She shows anyone that if you set your mind to it you can achieve great things Not to mention her stories on each of the summits is very impressive I live in Jackson hole and only hope I get the chance to meet her

    5. Kit is a phenomenal athlete and an inspiration male or female Fantastic book, one of my favorites for life Anyone remotely interested in the outdoors mountains should read.

    6. I loved Higher Love Skiing the Seven Summits by Kit DesLauriers While it is a great story of Kit s drive to be the first person to climb up and ski from the summits of the highest peaks on each continent, I also really enjoyed the well written descriptions of the people and places that she visited along the way Perhaps my favorite was Elbrus, with a Soviet era mountaineering camp in a secret hanging valley.I received a free review copy of Higher Love through Giveaways.

    7. The story of a very tough and persistent woman who managed to be the first to ski down from the seven highest summits Harrowing, and inspiring, and sharing her love of the mountains and of skiing.

    8. Wow, an inspirational woman and athlete It made me feel like a lazy slug at the same time as inspiring me to be active Really unbelievable accomplishments and a good read.
