The Climb

Tragic Ambitions on Everest
Written by Anatoli Boukreev & G. Weston DeWalt | Narrated by Lloyd James
In May 1996, three Mount Everest climbing expeditions were caught in an unexpected blizzard — and their survival depended on the bravery of a single man. A chilling account (literally and figuratively) that Library Journal says “will remain in the reader’s memory long after the book is finished.”

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

This is the gripping true account of the worst disaster in the history of Mt. Everest. On May 10, 1996, two commercial expeditions headed by experienced leaders attempted to climb the highest mountain in the world—but things went terribly wrong. Crowded conditions on the mountain, miscommunications, unexplainable delays, poor leadership, bad decisions, and a blinding storm conspired to kill. Twenty-three men and women, disoriented and out of oxygen, struggled to find their way down the side of the mountain. In the dark, battered by snow and driven by hurricane-force winds, some of the climbers became hopelessly lost and resigned themselves to death. But head climbing guide Anatoli Boukreev refused to give up hope. Climbing blind in the maw of a life-threatening storm, Boukreev brought climbers back from the edge of certain death.

This is an amazing true story of an expedition fated for disaster, of the blind ambition that drives people to attempt such dangerous ventures, and of a modern-day hero, who risked his own life to save others.
