    Such a pall of anger and defensiveness hangs over Boukreev's account that only those with a personal interest in his reputation will find much solace in his story. Josh and Peak fly to Bangkok, Thailand. For a while Mike loses himself in this closed little world but in the end seems to become disenchanted with its narrowness. Eiger Dreams by Jon Krakauer In this collection of his finest work, Jon Krakauer explores the topic of mountaineering from the memorable perspective of one who has battled K2, Denali, Everest and, of course, the Eiger. His friends cannot believe he has died on an undistinguished climb that was well within his technical competence and seem to have difficulty understanding the obvious fact that a foot ground fall is more likely to result in death than a twisted ankle. Everest in spring led by the American Scott Fischer, owner of Mountain Madness, an outdoor adventure company based in Seattle.

    Since its publication several climbs of King's College Chapel have been completed. One of the greatest survival stories ever written, this compelling narrative forces the reader to wonder how they might have acted in the same circumstances. Like Into Thin Air, Jon Krakauer's bestselling chronicle of the same expedition, this account is a gripping account of the Mountain Madness group's bid to reach the top of the world's highest peak, one that combines Boukreev's firsthand recollections and DeWalt's interviews with team members. Boukreev also implicates commercial guides Rob Hall and Scott Fischer and the increased practice of leading inexperienced climbers up high mountains as playing crucial roles in the tragedy that ensued. Boukreev completes the book by describing his own method for training and leading clients up Everest as a guide for a national Indonesian team of climbers.

    His father, Joshua Wood, has almost never seen him and leads climbing expeditions. Sun-jo, a Nepalese boy who is the same age as Peak, takes Peak to Zopa on a broken motorcycle. If he makes the climb, he will be the youngest person to reach the summit. The writing is lyrical, transporting the reader climber and non-climber to extraordinarily beautiful places.
