1999 paperback edition in very good condition with pen inscription on inside pages.


Krakauer's writing is gripping. This is a must read. I can still remember hearing about the tragedy on Radio New Zealand news, back in 1996.


Into Thin Air is a 1997  book written by Jon Krakauer. It details Krakauer's experience in the 1996 Mount Everest climbing disaster, in which eight climbers were killed and several others were stranded by a storm. Krakauer's expedition was led by New Zealand guide Rob Hall and his guiding company Adventure Consultants. Other groups were trying to summit on the same day, including one led by Scott Fischer, whose guiding agency, Mountain Madness, was perceived as a competitor to Hall's agency, Adventure Consultants.
