All forty-eight of them. She endures injuries, novice mistakes, and the heartbreaking loss of a best friend. When breast cancer threatens her own life, she seeks solace and recovery in the wild. Hear her talk about hiking, changing careers, overcoming grief and more from the quest that took her ten years to complete.
