Savage Summit: Life and Death of the First Women of K2 - Jennifer Jordan (Harper Collins, 2006)

Climbers call K2 The Savage Mountain. It is not quite as tall as Everest but it is far more dangerous located at the border of China and Pakistan in the deadly Karakoram range which has the harshest climbing conditions and weather of any place in the world. Ninety women have climbed Everest but only five female climbers have ever reached the summit of K2 alive. Journalist Jennifer Jordan has chronicled the individual stories of the five courageous women who have climbed K2 in this truly gripping narrative nonfiction.
