Forget Me Not

Jennifer Lowe-Anker


A personal account of one of the greatest losses in the climbing world
An elegant and gripping story of tragedy, as well as unexpected joy
An entrée into the emotional world of climbers and their families
Benefits the Nepal-based Khumbu Climbing School

In 1999 Jennifer Lowe's husband Alex Lowe died tragically in an avalanche on the Himalayan mountain Shishapangma, leaving her alone to raise three sons. Alex was widely considered one of the greatest modern climbers and the world mourned his loss -Tom Brokaw did a one-hour special for Dateline, and Sting narrated and composed music for a tribute film.

While Jenni and her sons faced the absence of the most important man in their lives, Alex's best friend and longtime climbing partner, Conrad Anker, was dealing with the terrible loss as well as feelings of survivor's guilt. Jenni and Conrad gradually, and unexpectedly, found solace in one another and married in 2001- Conrad is now the adoptive father of the three Lowe children.
