Tess Burrows was born in Southern England in 1948 and educated at Bedales School. She gained a degree in Ecological Science from Edinburgh University and moved to Australia to grow trees. In 1984 she returned as the mother of three young boys, with the gentleness of motherhood being paramount. In 1990, hit by the realisation that it is possible to help the Earth and make a difference, she started climbing and using this medium for a number of unusual events raising awareness and funds for charity.
In 1998 she founded Climb For Tibet with her partner Pete. Together they undertook various “peace climbs”, raising over £100,000 for building schools in Tibet for underprivileged children.
Best-selling author of Cry from The Highest Mountain, climbing instructor, healer, motivational speaker and grandmother of two little girls – one of whom was born the same day as this book.
She is a believer in the joy and positivity of life.
Like many Eye Books authors, Tess has considerable charitable interests.

Climb for Tibet Tune-in
We invite you to take part in our tune-in to help the peace and harmony of the Earth. This is a peace focus which takes place for six minutes at 6:00pm (British Time) on the sixth day of every month. People around the world simply hold thoughts for peace. It does not matter where you physically are, but a quiet mind concentrating for a few minutes contributes in a powerful way. It helps to think of the symbol of the six-pointed star sending out rays of light and peace to all beings.
Do join us. With love and respect,
Tess and Pete

Cold hands, warm heart
Cold hands, warm heart Tess and Pete joined the historic South Pole Race, to compete with the likes of Olympic champion James Cracknell and Ben Fogle in the first race to the South Pole since Scott and Amundsen.To complete this mission they would have to battle severe medical problems, lack of money, hardship and deprivation. For Tess it was more than combatting cold hands with a warm heart, it was also a journey to push out the reaches of the human mind. Nobody said it was going to be easy…

Cry From the Highest Mountain
Their goal was to climb to the point furthest from the centre of the Earth, some 2,150 metres higher than the summit of Everest. The mission: to promote Earth Peace. For Tess it became a struggle of body and mind, as she was driven towards the highest point within herself.
Altitude sickness, blizzards and lack of experience were just a few of the problems that stood between the team and their goal: the summit. Would courage and belief carry them through, against the odds?
