No Magic Helicopter

No Magic Helicopter

by Carol Masheter

When the bottom fell out of Carol Masheter‘s life at age 50, she took up high altitude mountaineering to cope with grief and anger. She was an unlikely climber. Afraid of heights, she also struggled with anxiety and depression. Little did she know that mountaineering would lead her to climb Mount Everest when she was 61, an age when many people want to retire and relax. “No Magic Helicopter: An Aging Amazon’s Climb of Mount Everest” chronicles Dr. Masheter’s preparation for the climb of a lifetime, her struggle to the summit, and the blind descent that threatened her life.
