In 1871, almost exactly six years after the first ascent by Whymper, Lucy Walker, a 35-year old experienced mountaineer, has a plan: she wants to be the first woman to climb the Matterhorn. However, this rebellious young woman's plan is met with resistance from all sides. The American Meta Brevoort is also on her way to Zermatt with exactly the same plan. Walker has to combat her parents’ opinion, her status and position and all the prejudices that women faced at that time. In this amusing, historical story, seriousness meets levity, ambition meets fear and prejudice meets open-mindedness.
