All That Glitters: A Climber's Journey Through Addiction and Depression
Margo Talbot's unflinchingly honest account of a childhood characterized by abuse and neglect, her descent into depression, addiction, and criminal activity is both heartbreaking and, ultimately, inspiring. Finding redemption and healing through her passion for the outdoors and, in particular, ice climbing, this memoir is a stirring testament to the power of the human spirit and the healing force of nature.

What People are Saying...
“This inspiring real-life story shows us that our lives’ biggest challenges can also be our greatest opportunities for personal growth, transformation, and enlightenment. Margo is magnificent!”
“This disarmingly frank self-portrait of a life almost off the rails is a road map to redemption.”
“All that Glitters is a shining example of hope, and the words literally sizzle from the pages to one’s heart. This book will save lives.”
“The glittering eye of the addict, the glittering gold of the drug runner, the glittering ice of the frozen waterfall—any of these can kill. How did Margo Talbot survive such fatal attractions? It’s one hell of a story.”
“This is as much or more a story of climbing from the darkness to the light as it is of climbing mountains. Climbing is hard, but this remarkable story proves that the most difficult place to find is not a distant summit, but peace within the savage terrain between our ears.”
