Women of the Four Winds by Elizabeth Fagg Olds This book profiles four women who were “ahead of their time” who lived in the early/mid 1900’s including Annie Peck, the first person to climb the great 6000+ meter Huascaran in Peru.
We feature this book here because of the story of Annie Peck and that is the only story we actually read & reviewed in this book. Annie had several aborted and failed attempts before successfully summiting Huascaran.
