Jon Krakauer joined Rob Hall’s Adventure Consultants team to write for Outside magazine on an Everest guided climb. In the end he was one of the few survivors of the disastrous storm which killed eight climbers in May 1996. His account of one of mountaineering’s worst tragedies, and its implications for commercial guiding, was a bestseller for weeks and sold millions of copies. This magnificent special edition of Krakauer’s bestseller, over 2,000,000 sold!, features heavy stock paper, a full-cloth stamped case, and 240 photos, many of which have not been previously published, from a variety of sources. Includes a new postscript by Krakauer in response to Boukreev’s book ‘The Climb’.

Winner 1997 Banff Mountain Book Festival Jon Whyte Award for Mountain Literature.
