レビュー

...Rolfe created an exquisitely crafted book that is a joy to read, not only because Tabei's story is so compelling, and her character so delightfully admirable, but also because Rolfe's writing and editing skills are so finely tuned.

-- (05/09/2019)

The book provides a comprehensive reference to Tabei's climbing career, as well as numerous reflections and insights, and entertaining stories with enjoyable glimpses of Tabei's world through her unique lens.

-- (07/16/2018)

The book's charm lies in Tabei's unassuming but obviously driven nature, and its insights into how Japanese society approaches mountaineering provides the reader with a personal view of the climbing world beyond the Anglosphere.

-- (07/01/2018)

The story of a young woman who begins climbing in Japanese Mountain Club culture in the 1960's is a tale worth reading in itself. From this complex and often tragic social beginning Junko Tabei goes on to a rich life that manages to include family, teaching and climbing all over the world well into her late 70's while supporting causes related to the value of a life connected to nature and the mountains. It is a well named and well put together piece of history.

著者について

Junko Tabei (1939–2016) was born in Miharu, a small town in Fukushima prefecture, north of Tokyo. She passed away on October 20, 2016, and is survived by her beloved husband, Masanobu Tabei, daughter Noriko and son Shinya, as well as other relatives and countless friends in the international mountaineering community.

An amazing mountaineer and lover of peaks, Junko Tabei founded the Ladies Climbing Club in 1969 and reached the summit of Everest on May 16, 1975, as leader of an all-women Japanese team. After Everest, Tabei devoted her adult life to climbing the world’s highest peaks, including the Seven Summits. In 1999 she received the Snow Leopard Award for completing the five 7000-metre-plus mountains in the former Soviet Union, and climbed the tallest mountains in more than 70 countries. To remain committed to her passion for climbing, Junko defied cultural expectations of motherhood and enjoyed a 49-year marriage to an incredibly supportive husband. They were a family of four: one daughter and one son.

Deeply concerned about the degradation of Mount Everest, Junko established the Himalayan Adventure Trust of Japan in 1990, the Japanese version of Sir Edmund Hillary’s Himalayan Trust. She was also a published author of numerous mountaineering books. In 2000, at age 60, she completed her master's studies at Kyushu University in southern Japan, based on the refuse problem on Everest that results from overcrowding by climbers.

Junko reached 7000 metres on Mt. Manaslu at age 66 (having been forced to retreat due to poor weather), and continued to climb even after being diagnosed with cancer in 2012. She celebrated the 40th anniversary of her Everest success with a hiking trip to Tengboche, Nepal, on the familiar route to Base Camp, in September 2015. The last summit Junko reached was Japan’s Mt. Fuji (3010 metres) in July 2016. The climb was in support of high school students affected by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami that devastated the area.
