Summary

ONLY THE SKY ABOVE Mount Everest, 29,028 feet—on May 27th, 1999, Helga Hengge reaches the top of the world, the highpoint of an exciting career between the extremes of creative work and outstanding mountaineering achievement. In her inspiring account she takes her readers on an adventure through Tibet and up to the summit of Mount Everest with emotional and authentic insights into the dynamics of tackling the ultimate challenge. Accompanied by spectacular images of her two-month long ascent via the Northeast Ridge in Tibet she shares her story of pushing physical and emotional boundaries in the face of challenge. She talks about the step-by-step ascent, the power of a team, dealing with setbacks, and about trusting your inner strength. The highlight of her account is the ascent to the summit and the fulfillment of a great dream. The moment, when there is only the sky above. Helga Hengge, who has dual citizenship, was the first German woman to successfully summit Everest and the first American woman to do so from the North side.

    In order to preserve the original design and quality of the print edition of this book, we have used a fixed format ePub format. This means that there can be a slight delay as pages are loaded, but you will be rewarded with a rich visual experience. Consequently this edition is not suitable for reading on an iPhone or iPad mini. A free flowing text version of this edition is currently under production and will be available soon. The edition is compatible with the iBook reader on the OSX Mavericks operating system, but as this currently doesn't have the ability to zoom pages, so some of the smaller text is a little hard to read on older 13" non Retina laptop screens.
