A wonderful book: another first- person narrative and perspective of what happened on Everest in 1996. My reading of this story comes at the perfect time: the current triumph of the first American woman to summit Everest without oxygen, as well as recent deaths on top of Everest.
I find the stories of mountain climbing fascinating; the courage, hubris, adventurers...although I love climbing and hiking and hope to trek across many countries one day, I don't (as of yet ha ha) have an interest in doing anything as crazy as a desire to summit 8000+ peaks. Too frickin cold!!!
Another 250 pages read, I think all the books that I have read --and will read in this lifetime--if, piled or stacked, will surpass the height of the peak of Everest!

... Loves to lie amongst the warm rays of sunshine and read, read, read, learn, learn, learn, and live, live, live, vicariously between the pages!
