Anyone who has read John Krakauer's famous account of the 1996 Everest disaster, Into Thin Air, will remember Beck Weathers: the gregarious Texan climber who went snow-blind in the Death Zone and spent a night out in the open during a blizzard that took the lives of a dozen colleagues. Having staggered back to camp the following morning, so extreme was his frostbite that fellow survivors assumed he would never make it back down the mountain. But, calling upon reserves of courage and tenacity he didn't know he had, Weathers began the slow descent, to a point at which the next stage of the drama could unfold: the highest rescue by helicopter ever attempted. This is his story: a heartstoppingly exciting and ultimately very moving account of tremendous hardship and courage, and of the toughest challenge of all - reconciliation with a family he'd taken for granted for too long. This 2001 Warner Paperback is in Near Mint condition.
