Armchair adventurers can't ask for better entertainment than this tour of the legendary locations of mountaineering and the eccentric climbers who gather there.

'Ventures among Men and Mountains' is the subtitle of the book. Interesting for all those who love to read about real people and their adventures.

This is an excellent book written by one who has experienced the rush of climbing the dangerous mountains himself. As always if you have read any of Jon Krakauer's book you know how exciting and keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. Several stories, each as exciting as the next.

great supplement to Krakauer material. Multiple short stories in his tried and true thriller style. I love his writing, and this little bathroom reader did nothing but solidify that sentiment in my mind. Enjoy it.

I thought this was a CD, didn't read the description before I ordered it and don't have a player so went and bought the book for husband. He said this is an excellent book, and he reads a lot of climbing books. So if you have a player, her tiz a audio cassette for you!
