Anatoli Boukreev is perhaps, for better or worse, best known for his role in the 1996 Everest disaster. His account of that event, The Climb, is a compelling read and became a bestseller. Wylie, Boukreev’s companion, provides a more complete picture of this great climber. There are accounts of his climbs on McKinley, K2, Makalu, Manaslu, and Everest - including his diary account of the 1996 Everest expedition, written shortly after his return. Sadly, Boukreev was killed in an avalanche on Annapurna in December 1997.

Winner 2002 Banff Mountain Book Festival Jon Whyte Award for Mountain Literature.
