Product description

Product Description

"…so now, five years after my first fight for individual freedom, the girl climber at the Hermitage need expect nothing worse than raised eyebrows when she starts out unchaperoned and clad in climbing costume. It is some consolation to have achieved as much as this, and to have blazed one more little path through ignorance and convention, and added one tiny spark to the ever-growing beacon lighted by the women of this generation to help their fellow-travellers climb out of the dark woods and valleys of conventional tradition and gain the fresh, invigorating air and wider view-point of the mountain-tops.”
Freda Du Faur, Australia's first female mountaineer, was the first woman to summit Aoraki/Mt. Cook, and became, for a brief period of time, the top amateur climber in the world. Fighting against prejudice, Du Faur pursued her passion for the high peaks, and wrote this stirring memoir of bold adventure.

Unabridged, with a foreword by K.L. Webber.
