An intense and emotional epistolary memoir by one of the world’s top ice climbers, born at the confluence of motherhood, adventure, career, and marriage. But don’t be fooled, this is not a story of how it all works, it’s a story of the maelstrom trying to pull off a big life you want to make bigger, told through the real time letters Majka wrote to her twins from pregnancy to age five while pregnant and then a mom to young twins, while also trying to maintain her career as a professional climber, have a good marriage, re-parent herself, lead a growing international organization that’s disrupting the way conservation is done, and…more.
