This Week's Book of the Week:
Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer
Synopsis: 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.
