Book: Everest Base Camp: Close Call
Author: Catina Noble
“Everest Base Camp: Close Call is a gripping and fascinating story about Everest told from the perspective of a brave woman who openly shares the triumphs and disappointments of reaching for a dream. Catina Noble pulls the reader in with the warmth from a stove in the dining room of a teahouse, the humorous attempts at using squat toilets, the delicious comfort food and the kindness of the people of Nepal in contrast with the achingly cold conditions and uncertainty felt on her trek. With vivid and absorbing passages, Noble offers a heartfelt reminder that the journey is as important as they dream itself.” – Sonia Saikly, author of The Allspice Bath
