Summary: "We were, however, particularly impressed by two books, which though not shortlisted, we believe have made a welcome additions to the history of mountaineering. . . . A Day To Die For . . . though this is a book that will undoubtedly cause controversy in some quarters, we believe that Everest historians, as well as those on the mountain in 1996, will find it an absorbing read."

Synopsis: The truth about the 1996 Everest disaster by one of its survivors, uncovering crucial new information On May 10 and 11, 1996, eight climbers perished in what remains the worst disaster in Everest's history. Following the tragedy, numerous accounts were published, with Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air becoming an international bestseller—but has the whole story been told? This book reveals for the first time the full, startling facts that led to the tragedy. Graham Ratcliffe, the first British climber to reach the summit of Mount Everest twice, was a first-hand witness, having spent the night on Everest's South Col at 26,000 feet, sheltering from the deadly storm. For years, he has shouldered a burden of guilt, feeling that he and his teammates could have saved lives that fateful night. His quest for answers has led to discoveries so important to an understanding of the disaster that he now questions why these facts were not made public sooner. History is dotted with high profile disasters that both horrify and capture the attention of the public, but very rarely is the prevailing view of them revised to such devastating effect.

About the Author: Graham Ratcliffe is a member of Henry Todd's team who was also on Mount Everest's South Col on May 10, 1996.
