Ep83 – Edge of the Map – Johanna Garton
Happy 2021! Today’s episode is for all you mountain climbers out there… both physical and metaphorical. We’re joined by Johanna Garton, author of Edge of the Map: The Mountain Life of Christine Boskoff. It’s a dramatic and inspiring adventure story based on the lives of trailblazing mountaineer Christine Boskoff and her partner Charlie Fowler.
She was a rarity at the time – a woman leading otherwise all-male expeditions. Despite challenges both personal and professional, Christine persevered to find freedom and a balance with nature on the earth’s wildest peaks. And, in legendary Colorado rock climber Fowler, she discovered her perfect partner. Edge of the Map captures each step of the pair’s story, culminating in their disappearance among the remote peaks of western China and the desperate search to find them which gripped the world.
