'If I could choose a place to die, it would be in the mountains.'Clouds from Both Sides is the autobiography of Julie Tullis, the first British woman to climb an 8,000-metre peak - Broad Peak - and the first to reach the summit of K2, the world's second-highest mountain.A truly remarkable woman, Julie describes her early days in a London disrupted by World War II; her family life, climbing, teaching and living by the sandstone outcrops of High Rocks and Harrison's Rocks in Tunbridge Wells, Kent; and her experience as a high-level mountaineer and filmmaker. Tullis demonstrates her determination and self-discipline through training to black-belt standard in both judo and aikido, and never allows financial concerns to keep her away from the high mountains
