"One of the most amazing rescues in mountaineering history, performed single-handedly a few hours after climbing Everest without oxygen by a man some describe as the Tiger Woods of Himalayan climbing."-Wall Street Journal.

This is another account of the ill fated 1996 Everest distaster that Jon Krakauer wrote about. Anotoly is a climbing stud and fully documents how he went about assisting in the rescue of numerous individuals in the danger zone. It's not as good of a read as Krakauer's book, "Into Thin Air," but a good read nonetheless.

This is a story of the famous May 10th 1996 Mt. Everest expedition told from the perspective of Anatoli Boukreev, head mountain guide for Mountain Madness (run by Scott Fisher). His love and respect for the mountain show through. His concern for safety and his efforts that saved 3 people make this book unique.
