    Story
    (2014)

    In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.

    I couldn't make it through killing the dogs, clubbing seals, etc. It otherwise seemed like it would be a great read.

    Story

    The definitive, personal account of the deadliest season in the history of Everest by the acclaimed journalist and author of Into the Wild. Read by the author. Also, hear a Fresh Air interview with Krakauer conducted shortly after his ordeal.

    Overall

    Prior to reading this book, I knew very little about mountain climbing and nothing about high altitude climbing. It gives you a good crash course on the subject without being dry. I had to look up some terms just to get a better idea about the technical aspects of such a climb. Mr. Krakauer attempts to present the 1996 Everest disaster in a both factual and humble manner. His account inspires the reader to ponder questions of life, death, will, and morality. It's a great read.
