About the Author:

Bob Madgic is a retired public-school administrator and now a full-time writer on the outdoors. He lives in Anderson, California.

From AudioFile:

In 1985 two hikers were killed by lightning while climbing YosemiteÕs Half Dome, which has been described as a Ògranite lightning rod.Ó This is their story, and much more. Madgic explores the history of Yosemite, the damage lightning can do, methods to treat it, the efforts of a female EMT who kept the injured alive until a helicopter could come, and the hikersÕ backgrounds. Anthony HealdÕs slightly husky voice is perfect for this outdoor horror story. He adds foreshadowing when describing the gathering clouds, quickens the pace during the storm, and injects personality into the follow-up interviews. Listen and be educated, entertained--and cautioned. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
