Over 200 adventures written in chilling detail by 29 women who in solar winter reached the summits of all 46 Adirondack High Peaks over 4,000 feet. Many tales came from letters written to Adirondack Forty-Sixer Club's beloved historian, Grace Hudowalski. The Forty-Sixer story and winter hiking in the High Peaks are surveyed. Biographies, accompanied by photos of each, give a fascinating glimpse into the lives of this rare breed: Women Winter 46ers.
