Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
Cape Town, 2016, 1st edition. 190 pp, color photos on glossy stock for better detail. Paperback, only edition, New. 

Another book on the 1996 Mount Everest Disaster, originally written about by Jon Krakauer in his best selling book Into Thin Air (28 years ago!). Wikipedia now has a 15 page entry on that tragedy on Everest, called ''1996 Mount Everest disaster.''

To read my essay on the impact that tragedy had on mountaineering literature, please read my essay After Thin Air, You can find it on a link on the left side of this page on this website. My article is 8 pages long and originally appeared in the 1999 American Alpine Journal.

Everest Untold is the unknown backstory of a journalist who was an eyewitness to the tragedies which occurred on the mountain in 1996. The aim of the book is to bring to life the diary entries, audio recordings and recollections of Patrick Conroy to explore unexamined evidence of the tragedies and to revisit many of the assumptions of what truly happened during Everest’s most deadly climbing season. Conroy reported live from the mountain throughout the climbing season of that year.
