This soundtrack to a PBS documentary about a group of breast-cancer survivors who climb Mount McKinley consists largely of previously released tracks by popular female recording artists including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Paula Cole, Celine Dion, Nanci Griffith, k.d. lang, and Indigo Girls, several of which roughly relate to the film's plot (such as Griffith's recording of Kate Wolf's "Across the Great Divide" and Dion's of Diane Warren's "Love Can Move Mountains"). As such, it's hardly an essential purchase on aesthetic grounds, but the artists have all donated their services to the Breast Cancer Fund, which sponsored the climb, and the film serves to heighten awareness of breast cancer.
