An incredible first-hand account of survival in one of the most uncompromising environments in the world: the summit of Mt. Everest… during a blizzard!
Jon Krakauer was one of the lucky few in his party to make it down from the mountain on that disastrous trip. Here he recounts how an already near-impossible feat—climbing the tallest peak in the world—turned into a flat-out disaster.
Intense, riveting, harrowing. A must-read for thrill-seekers, adrenaline junkies and armchair adventurers of all ages.
