Detailed Product Description

1997. 320 pp, color photos, maps. Anatoli Boukreev was Scott Fischer's head guide on the tragic Everest climb in May 1996, and one of the strongest climbers of his time. This is his story of those events, often in conflict with Jon Krakauer's version in INTO THIN AIR. Trade paperback, New condition.

This is a first-person account of the tragic climbing experience in May 1996 on Mount Everest that left eight hikers dead and several others struggling to stay alive. Boukreev, a top-rated high-altitude climber originally from the Soviet Union, uses notes and memories recorded only five days after the tragic events to tell what happened on the world's highest mountain. He writes partly in response to other best-selling accounts (e.g., Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air).
