Publisher's Summary

Everest and K2 are among the Earth's most dangerous places, yet the world's best climbers can't stay away from them. This audio program offers a unique perspective on climbing these two peaks, from early exploration disasters, to the modern tragedies. You'll hear writing from Matt Dickinson, Chirs Bonington, David Roberts, and others whose stories remind us, in vivid accounts, why Everest and K2 are so feared yet so irresistable to climbers.

Excellent!

Really great stories for anyone fascinated by mountaineering. The stories were all taken from different sources; some are chapters in books, others were articles in magazines. All of them, however, are engulfing and well-written, and well-performed.

Perfect

As a hill walker/mountaineer my husband looked forward to listening to this and he devoured this book. Full of detail and well narrated so a win all around.
