    In 1996, Beck Weathers and a climbing team pushed toward the summit of Mount Everest. Then a storm exploded on the mountain, ripping the team to shreds, forcing brave men to scratch and crawl for their lives. In this powerful memoir, Weathers describes not only his escape from hypothermia and the murderous storm that killed eight climbers but the journey of his life. This is the story of a man's route to a dangerous sport and a fateful expedition, as well as the road of recovery he has traveled since.

    Som mange andre ambitiøse bjergbestigere drog Beck Weathers i maj 1996 mod toppen af verdens højeste bjerg. Under topforsøget eksploderede en rasende storm på Everest og resulterede i den hidtil mest tragiske dag på bjerget nogensinde, hvor ni mennesker mistede livet. Også Weathers blev fanget i stormen og måtte kaempe for sit liv højt oppe på bjerget. De redningsfolk, der dagen efter gik tilbage efter ham, fandt Beck Weathers i en tilstand af hypotermisk koma og overlod ham til døden på bjerget. Men 12 timer senere skete det umulige - Weathers dukkede pludselig frem af snemasserne blaendet af solen, uden sine handsker og staerkt underafkølet - men i live.
