One woman's journey facing the world's toughest and most dangerous summits and the lessons she has learnt along the way. Gripping and inspiring, this is a story of determination, passion and overcoming fear.

'What I've learned from climbing mountains is that we can push ourselves far beyond what we think we are capable of, and it's outside of our comfort zones that the most amazing things happen.'

What drives us to go to our limits and beyond? What does it take to make dreams come true over all else? And how can you turn fear into courage?

From Everest to K2, SAVAGE MOUNTAIN is the story of Bonita Norris' journey undertaking the world's toughest and most dangerous expeditions. Once an anxious teenager with an eating disorder it was the discovery of a passion for climbing that inspired Bonita to change her life.
