Forget me not - a memoir by Jennifer Lowe-Anker

Hoog in de Himalaya, komt een topklasse klimmer om in een lawine. Hij laat een vrouw, z'n 3 zonen en een goede vriend achter die vervolgens hun pijn moeten zien te verwerken.
Forget me not is een avontuurlijke met inzicht geschreven memoire, een tijdloos verhaal over de vaak gecompliceerde maar tevens ultieme motiverende kracht van liefde.
Winnaar van de "National Outdoor Book Award"
Voorwoord door Jon Krakauer
Synopsis Having suddenly lost her husband, Alex Lowe, in a tragic mountaineering accident, Jennifer Lowe struggled to hold her family together and deal with her grief. At the same time Alex's best friend, famed climber Conrad Anker, was dealing with the terrible loss as well as feelings of survivor's guilt. Jenni and Conrad gradually, and unexpectedly, found solace in one another. Forget Me Not spans continents and tells the story of three people whose lives intertwine to a degree they could never have imagined. Jennifer Lowe-Anker is an artist whose often whimsical paintings are rendered in vivid color and rich texture inspired by her Montana upbringing. Gripped Magazine Given Alex Lowe's high profile as one of the world's best climbers, it stands to reason that several notable authors [are] qualified to recount his life and accomplishments in the first book following his tragic death below a massive avalanche on Shishapangma. But no one is more qualified than his widow, Jennifer Lowe-Anker . . . Jennifer delivers a candid glimpse into the life of a driving and complicated force otherwise known as Stewart Alexander Lowe. More Reviews and Recommendations Biography Jennifer Lowe-Anker is a successful artist whose often whimsical paintings are rendered in vivid color and rich texture inspired by her Montana upbringing. Her work hangs in the private collections of Peter Fonda, Michael Keaton, and Jeff Bridges, as well as in the corporate collections of Patagonia. Lowe-Anker is founder of the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation and its Khumbu Climbing School, which trains Nepalese in climbing and guiding skills, enabling them to successfully work and climb in their home region. * A personal account of one of the greatest losses in the climbing world * An elegant and gripping story of tragedy, as well as unexpected joy * An entrée into the emotional world of climbers and their families * Benefits the Nepal-based Khumbu Climbing School
