In this collection of his writings on mountaineering, Jon Krakauer spirits the reader to the highest reaches of some of the greatest mountains of the world, K2, Mt McKinley and the Eiger, immersing us in the culture of climbing and introducing the men and women who spend their lives in a quest to conquer these peaks.

Filled with the eccentric characters of the mountaineering community who live for the thrill of dicing with death, these pieces include such diverse activities as scaling frozen waterfalls in Alaska, canyoneering in Arizona, and an amusing digression on how to survive being tentbound. Together these tales give a fascinating insight into the attraction of high-risk sports. Krakauer's first-hand and intimate accounts take us right to the mountains themselves to experience both the thrills and terrors of climbing.
