Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

On May 9, 1996, 30 climbers began their ascent of Mount Everest. 25 came back alive--barely. One man knows the whole story. "The Climb" is an exhilarating account of mountaineering and a sober, cautionary tale of hubris in the face of unforgiving nature.


Review:

"...Raw, but powerful. [This book] tells a story not just of tragedy, but of a driven, self-centered man who loves to climb in the death zone....Bukreyev did the one thing that denies the void. He took action. He chose danger, and he saved lives."

New York Times Book Review, 12/07/1997
