The Climb - Tragic Ambitions on Everest

The Climb: Tragic Ambitions on Everest - Anatoli Boukreev, G. Weston DeWalt While the narrative style does not compare to Krakauer's account of the same events, it's interesting to get a different perspective on the 1996 Everest disaster. This book is basically a response to Krakauer's insinuations that Boukreev acted irresposibly on the mountain and gives another version of the same story.
