Regions of the Heart: The Triumph And Tragedy of Alison Hargreaves

Discover the powerful story of one woman's lifelong dedication to adventure and determination to succeed, as featured in the brand new BBC2 documentary The Last Mountain

'I shed a tear as I read this . . . I'll admit that I did not do so when I originally heard of her death. The difference? This book' INDEPENDENT

Alison Hargeaves was one of the finest climbers of her generation.

But in 1995, she died during a violent storm on K2.

On her death she was vilified by media outrage that a wife and mother would take such extreme risks.

This is the story of a woman with an astonishing determination to be the best that she could.

A woman driven to succeed just to secure a future for herself and her family.

'A riveting and incredibly moving story' Irish News

'Few realized the extent of her inner turmoil - and her courage. A very moving biography of an extraordinary woman with an extraordinary talent and determination' Daily Telegraph

'A sensitive and intelligent book . . . Rose and Douglas recuse Hargreaves from the crude distortions of those who wanted to vilify or venerate her' Sunday Telegraph
