Cry from the Highest Mountain

Tess Burrows

£9.99

20th anniversary edition

Foreword by the Dalai Lama, introduction by Joanna Lumley


In 1999, driven by the desire to address the plight of the Tibetan nation, Tess Burrows decided to climb to the point furthest from the centre of the Earth to broadcast thousands of peace messages she had collected from people of all ages.

Gathering together a small expedition team, including Mig, a young Tibetan refugee who had never climbed a mountain before, Tess set off on her spiritual mountaineering mission. She recounts her inner and outer journeys, including the multiple synchronicities that seemed to validate her quest in mysterious ways.

For Tess, it becomes a struggle of body and mind, as she is symbolically compelled towards the highest point within herself.

ABOUT

Tess Burrows

Tess Burrows is a peace activist, climbing instructor, healer, motivational speaker and grandmother of four.

She was born in Southern England in 1948 and educated at Bedales School. After taking a degree in ecological science from Edinburgh University, she moved to Australia to grow trees. By the time she returned to the UK, she was the single mother of three young boys.

In 1990, she started climbing, cycling, running, walking and parachuting to raise funds for environmental, animal and educational projects. Eight years later, she founded Climb For Tibet with her partner Pete Hammond, to gather peace messages to declaim from high places. The charity has now raised more than £150,000, mainly for building schools in Tibet.

She is the author of four books, Cry from The Highest Mountain, Cold Hands Warm Heart, Touch the Sky, and Soft Courage, all published by Eye Books.
