A few days back Conrad Anker, and his wife Jennifer Lowe-Anker, appeared on The Today Show to discuss her new book Forget Me Not: A Memoir. The video below is from that show, where they are interviewed by Ann Curry.
For those that don’t know Conrad and Jennifer’s story, this is a nice introduction, and of course the book goes into it much further. Conrad was best friends with Jennifer’s husband Alex Lowe, and the two were climbing together on Shishapangma back in 1999, when an avalanche struck, killing Alex, and nearly taking Conrad as well. In the months that followed, Conrad and Jennifer helped each other to heal and in the process fell in love themselves.
Thanks to the National Geographic Adventure Blog for the video.
