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

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.
