The terror and triumph of the May 1996 climbing season on Mount Everest will go down in infamy. Made famous by Jon Krakauer's bestseller Into Thin Air and recounted in David Breashears's gripping IMAX film, the story is relayed in National Geographic's gripping volume, updated with brilliant new panoramic photography. Written in suspenseful detail, the book documents how a courageous photographic team, facing hazards of their own, became an essential part of a rescue effort that brought some--but not all--of their companions down from the mountain alive. Added to the classic main text are fascinating updates: brief portraits of those who lived through the tragedy; a time line of subsequent climbing events on Everest, up to 2014; and never-before-published detailed panoramics of Everest and the Himalaya.
