One of the first women and first Americans to go mountaineering throughout the world, Betsy Cowles Partridge climbed extensively during the 1930's and 1940's in Colorado, the Tetons, the Santa Martas in Columbia, the Canadian Rockies, and the Swiss Alps. In addition to being a forerunner in making these trips, Partridge wrote extensively about her adventures and recorded them in beautiful black and white photos. Her 'trip of a lifetime' was the 1950 trek she and four men took to the Khumba region of Nepal, home to Mount Everest. Betsy was the official photographer of the party, the first ever Westener to visit the area. This is an exciting adventure told, in part, in the mountaineer's own words and containing a selection of Partridge's photos.
