Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster
by Jon Krakauer
non fiction
From The Jacket:A bank of clouds was assembling on the not-so-distant horizon, but journalist-mountaineer Jon Krakauer, standing on the summit of Mt. Everest, saw nothing that "suggested that a murderous storm was bearing down." He was wrong. The storm, which claimed five lives and left countless more--including Krakauer's--in guilt-ridden disarray, would also provide the impetus for Into Thin Air, Krakauer's epic account of the May 1996 disaster.
This is a fascinating read about a real life event. I felt compelled to do more research about the book after finishing it because there's some controversy about what took place on the mountain. It's a great read.
