"This was a great adventure book. The story of climbers whose bad judgement caused them their lives. When Jon Krakauer reached the summit of Mt Everest in the early afternoon of May 10, 1996, he hadn't slept in fifty seven hours and was reeling from brain-altering affects of oxygen depeletion. As he turned to begin the perilous decent from 29,028 feet, twenty other climbers were still pushing doggedly to the top, unaware that the sky had begun to roil with clouds.
IN the definitive account of the deadliest season in the history of Everest, Jon Krakauer takes the reader step by step from Katmandu to the mountain's deadly pinnacle, unfolding breaktaking story."
