Summary:

"Saying yes to a high-altitude hike in the Himalayas was impossible to resist for adventure traveler Tracy Pawelski. But when red flags start to appear - unpredictable weather, trekkers stranded on the high pass, and a fragile infrastructure following 2015's devastating earthquake-Tracy begins to second-guess her decision. One Woman in the Himalayas recounts Tracy's journey of unexpected twists and turns on Nepal's famed Annapurna Circuit, one of the great treks in the world. She struggles with decisions that test her ability to adapt and think fast on her feet. This story is about finding the courage to continue even when things don't go as you planned. Walk with Tracy on an ancient trading route past waterfalls and rice terraces; peek inside the oldest monastery in the Himalayas; and share the path with yak herders and Sherpas. When Tracy finally hangs a string of Tibetan prayer flags over the Gangapurna Icefall to mark her turnaround point, she remembers the Buddhist monk who blessed them. Maybe Tracy wasn't quite ready for this test, but “If you wait until you think you're ready,” she says, “you may never act.”In her first book, One Woman's Camino, Tracy captured our hearts with the story about a mother-daughter adventure on an ancient pilgrim route across Spain. Now join Tracy as she walks in the shadow of the world's highest mountains and brings us along on a raw and wild ride of changed plans, pivots and decisions made in thin air. You don't want to miss a single word." --Back cover.
