In August 1995 Alison Hargreaves became the fifth woman and the fifth Briton to climb the 28,250-feet-high K2. The winds that she battled with on her descent were vicious, and it is likely that she was blown to her death from the summit ridge to a depression of snow more than 3000 feet below. This tribute to Hargreaves's courage is her husband's account of his trip to the base camp of K2 with his two young children, to see "Mummy's last mountain" and say a last goodbye. The book accompanies a BBC1 documentary.
