M Capilene Air Crew
A classic and harrowing tale of survival, death, and page-turning details of the 1996 Mount Everest disaster. Krakauer is perhaps the greatest and most talented outdoor writer today, and Into Thin Air is one of his best works. It’s told in incredible narrative, and will both inspire you to do more and leave you wondering how to avoid tragedy in the outdoors. With death an inevitable part of alpinism, and a looming debate in the shadow of Everest (Chomolungma/ Sagarmatha), Krakauer’s finest piece will leave you in awe of the mountaineers that know the peak best.
