Holding On: A story of love and survival [9780749951375]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Having faced death head on, we wanted no regrets. It was time to go'. In 2005 Rob and Jo Gambi became the first married couple to achieve the ultimate adventurer's ambition when they climbed the 'Seven Summits' (the highest mountains on all seven continents) and skied to both the North and South Poles together in record time. Rob is also the first Australian and Jo the first female to achieve this feat. What makes their story even more remarkable is that they achieved all this while Rob was in remission from his second bout of cancer. In spite of setbacks and facing death high in the Himalayas, they persevered and fulfilled their dreams (while unwittingly setting a string of records). Jo's inspiring book is not just an enthralling account of mountaineering and polar achievements; it is a powerful and emotional story of love and survival against the odds.
AUTHOR: Jo Gambi was an experienced mountaineer when she met and married Rob. A multiple record holder, she still holds the record as the woman with the fastest time to climb the 'Seven Summits'. She is also the only English woman alive to have climbed Everest's North Ridge.
