About this book:

In July 2016, Letshego Zulu set off with her husband, South African racing champion Gugulethu Zulu, to conquer Mount Kilimanjaro. She had no idea that she would return to South Africa days later with her husband’s body in a coffin. Known and loved as SA’s Adventure Couple, the husband and wife team were brimming with excitement at being part of the 42-strong team of the Trek4Mandela initiative, attempting to summit the world’s highest free-standing mountain. Then things went badly wrong, tragically ending the couple's 15 year love story.

I Choose to Live is the untold story of what really happened on Kilimanjaro. Told in mesmerising detail, this is a remarkable journey  of a wife’s courage and stamina as she tries to make sense of her shocking loss and find an authentic life after Gugu’s untimely death. Through her get up and go attitude, Letshego’s  story is a testament that in the face of adversity, it is possible to pick yourself up and Choose To Live.
