"Forget Me Not will stay with your forever. It is a beautifully written story of great love, great daring, great loss, and great recovery. Most of all, it is a story of great courage." - Tom Brokaw




High in the Himalaya, a world-class adventurer dies, leaving a wife, three young sons and a best friend to cope with their grief...
In 1999, well-known mountaineer, Alex Lowe, died tragically in an avalanche on the remote Himalayan Mountain Shishapangma, leaving his wife Jennifer alone to raise their three children. Alex was widely considered one of the greatest modern climbers of our time, and the world mourned his loss. Tom Brokaw interviewed Jennifer Lowe and Conrad Anker for Dateline, and Sting narrated and composed music for a tribute film, The Endless Knot.
While Jenni and her sons faced the absence of a husband and father, Alex's longtime climbing partner, Conrad Anker, who survived the accident that killed Lowe, faced his own grief and survivor's guilt. Jenni and Conrad gradually, and unexpectedly, found solace in each other.
Through letters and expedition notes from Alex, Forget Me Not spans continents and tells the story of three people whose lives intertwine to a degree they could never have imagined. Jenni's account takes readers inside a woman's heart and mind as she navigates her shattered life and survives, finding love through loss. From the valleys of Montana, to the peaks of the Himalayas, this is the story of growing up, falling in love, finding adventure, rejoicing in parenthood, living through heartbreak, and believing in possibility -- above all else.
Readers will be spit from their armchairs, soaring across the heights of the highest peaks, and into the heart of the American west--with the voice of a soulful friend guiding their path.

About the Author:


JENNIFER LOWE-ANKER is a successful visual artist and the founder of the Khumbu Climbing School and Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation (see www.alexlowe.org).

Born in Missoula, Jennifer spent parts of her childhood working in the fields of her grandparent's homesteaded property in Montana's Grasshopper Valley. Lowe's paintings are rendered in the vivid color and rich texture of livestock markers and capture the whimsical images from her imagination and the memories of her Montana upbringing.

Lowe constructs her own frames and decorates them with a folk art quality - each of which carries an element of the painting that it is made for - giving her finished work a unique character. Jennifer began using the oily paintsticks in 1985 while a student at Montana State University. Since graduating in 1987, Lowe has been featured in 22 shows throughout the West. Her work has been shown alongside such well known Western artists as Thom Ross, Howard Post, Larry Pirnie and Donna Howell Sickels. Lowe's appeal has landed her work in private collections of such luminaries as Peter Fonda, Michael Keaton, Jeff Bridges and Jerry Spence, as well as in the corporate collections of Patagonia and Chronicle Books.

She lives in Bozeman, MT with her husband, Conrad Anker and their three children-Max, Sam and Isaac.
