Into Thin Air by Jon KrakauerThis is an epic account of May 1996 hurricane-force storm that hit Mt. Everest during the peak climbing season. Journalist-mountaineer Jon Krakauer was there, writing an article for Outdoor Magazine, but from the summit, he saw nothing that ?suggested that a murderous storm was bearing down.? He was wrong. The storm claimed five lives and left countless more in guilt-ridden disarray. This is a chilling, horrifying account of the physical and mental cost of such a climb, even under the best of circumstances.Popular and compelling non-fiction
