World-renowned ice climber Margo Talbot shares her compelling story of healing and self discover amid the frozen landscape of the planet.

Born and raised in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Margo Talbot grew up with a distant mother who "ruled the household with her eyes"; a father who opted to spend much of his time away from home; and four siblings struggling to deal with their particular domestic situation.  As a result of her family's dysfunction and her own growing mental illness, young Margo rarely smiled, had difficulty connecting with others, and was plagued with a black wave of anger and sadness that overshadowed much of the world around her.  In time, drugs, alcohol, sex and violence became her primary ways to connect with herself and others. 

From the depths of suicidal depression and a conversation with death, Talbot eventually found solace and redemption in both the healing power of nature and the glory of climbing frozen landscapes in some of the worlds most pristine and challenging environments. Heartbreaking, honest, energizing and inspiring All That Glitters is a remarkable memoir that shines a fresh light of hope on mental illness.
