    ePUB 19th century.co · Into Thin Air eBook ✓ Into Thin ePUB Ø into download, thin pdf, Into Thin kindle, Into Thin Air KindleI first purchased this book after seeing the film Everest that portrayed the 1996 disaster as I wanted to know about it Why do people feel the need to risk their lives? What was it about this mountain that drew people? Was the film accurate?For me this book helped me understand why people enjoy 'extreme' mountaineering and did explain the draw Everest has on people I actually found the history of it from being named the tallest mountain on Earth to her naming and the repeated attempts to summit really interestingAs to whether this book and the film accurately portray the disaster I will say the film mostly matches this book and the author makes it clear that this is how he viewed the events that he was not operating at peak efficiency and that a lot of people made small mistakes which ad

    ePUB 19th century.co · Into Thin Air eBook ✓ Into Thin ePUB Ø into download, thin pdf, Into Thin kindle, Into Thin Air KindleI am not a climber and only bought this book because it was recommended on a radio programme It is haunting scary and brutal but I could barely put the book down This must have been painful to write and there is an honesty in the acceptance that neurological impairment has made all versions of honesty uestionable than the usual bias of individual perspective and view This book speaks to uestions that go to heart of people in extreme circumstances even intriguing because they choose to be there driven perhaps but stil a choice I think the book was written with as open a mind as is possible and I hope I read it the same way

    ePUB 19th century.co · Into Thin Air eBook ✓ Into Thin ePUB Ø into download, thin pdf, Into Thin kindle, Into Thin Air Kindle'Into Thin Air' is a gripping haunting account of the now infamous 1996 guided Everest expedition that went horribly wrong resulting in 8 deaths The tragedy has been brought to the fore again following Kormakur's recent blockbuster 'Everest' which in my view is a pretty faithful re telling of Krakauer's bookDebate still rages about some differences in subseuent accounts of events that day Particularly the part Anatoli Boukreev Fischer's chief guide played in

    ePUB 19th century.co · Into Thin Air eBook ✓ Into Thin ePUB Ø into download, thin pdf, Into Thin kindle, Into Thin Air Kindle I sought out this book after seeing the latest film I figured there was so much to learn about what happened in 1996 I remembered the news stories at the time but not the actual details What I found with this was an eye opening account of what transpired on Everest To read about the progression of events unfolding from landing at the airport trekking across to the camps the actual ascents and descents of several clients plus the aftermath it gives one pause This is not a glamourised re telling it is gritty factual and heart breaking and I felt every bit of it A fascinating read
