Into Thin Air was once called the definitive, personal account of the deadliest season
in the history of Everest (1999). However, the novel can no longer be billed this way because
April 2014 was the deadliest season in the history of Everest!
On assignment for Outside magazine, Jon Krakauer, an accomplished climber and the acclaimed journalist
and author of Into the Wild.an accomplished climber, went to the Himalayas to report on
the growing commercialization of the planet's highest mountain. Everest has always been a dangerous mountain.
From the first British expeditions in the 1920s until 1996, one climber has died for ever 4 who have attained
the summit. This shocking death toll has NOT put a damper on the burgeoning business of guided ascents,
however, in which inexperienced alpinists with alarmingly amateurish skills are ushered up the mountain for a
$65,000 fee. To ascend into the thin, frigid air above 26,000 feet - the cruising altitude of a commercial jetliner -
is an inherently irrational act. The environment is unimaginably harsh, the margin for error miniscule.
Krakauer examines what it is about Everest that has compelled so many people - including himself -
to throw caution to the wind, ignore the concern of loved ones, and willingly subject themselves to
such risk, hardship, and expense.
