The Remarkable Story of the First Couple to Climb the Fabled Seven Summits.

A Saga of Love and Courage by Phil and Susan Ershler with Robin Simons

A powerful, inspirational true adventure story...

Susan: a Fortune 500 executive. Phil: a mountaineer with a secret. Together on Top of the World is the story of their journey—through life-threatening illnesses—to the highest mountain on every continent, to the extremes of elation and despair. It is a love story, an adventure story, a story of success against all odds. Above all, it is the story of two people who refused to back down in quest of a seemingly impossible dream.

Most inspiring, "Together on Top of the World" is a story of going for your greatest dreams against all odds and pushing past mental and physical boundaries.

On May 16, 2002, Phil and Susan Ershler reached the top of Mt. Everest and became the first couple in history to scale the fabled Seven Summits. What made their achievement all the more remarkable was that Susan was not a mountain climber, but a high-powered Fortune ® 500 executive who had never hiked or climbed until she met Phil at the age of 36. Phil, a professional mountain guide who was the first American to summit Everest from its treacherous north face, had climbed his whole life with Crohn's disease, a chronic, debilitating illness. Adding to these challenges, just before their final summit, Phil was diagnosed with colon cancer, and the resulting surgeries and complications were expected to end his career. This is Susan and Phil's story: a tale of love set in the mountains, a story of triumphal highs and devastating lows in quest of a seemingly impossible dream.
