New Altitude is an autobiography that shares Wendy Booker's remarkable passage beyond tough times to the top of the world. 

After a devastating MS diagnosis, Wendy fell haphazardly into running the Boston Marathon for The MS Society.  From that one simple act, an extraordinary series of circumstances unfolded that is nothing short of kismet.  Overcoming illness and divorce, and tackling one of the toughest mountains in the world twice, Wendy finds herself atop Denali (Mt. McKinley, Alaska) in 2004 at the age of 50.  That accomplishment propelled her next aspiration: to climb the Seven Summits (the highest peak on each of the seven continents). 

Follow her inspiring, poignant, and sometimes hilarious adventures as she seeks to conquer the mountains on her list with the intimidating specter of Mt. Everest looming on the horizon, and discover a whole new world along the way. 

Wendy became an “accidental athlete” as she likes to say it,  and found her self on a journey of self-discovery, serendipity and stubbornness will leave you laughing, crying and seeking their own mountains.
