Description
The first Scandinavian woman to summit Mount Everest, Lene Gammelgaard was on the mountain when the now-famous storm of May 10, 1996, hit and killed eight climbers, including her longtime friend and team leader Scott Fischer. Gammelgaard's gripping account of the fateful expedition puts the catastrophe into a new perspective. Unlike Jon Krakauer, Gammelgaard was there not to report, but to climb. As part of the Mountain Maddness team, Gammelgaard reveals new insights into Scott Fischer's and Anatoli Boukreev's leadership and larger-than-life personalities. And unlike others who have written about the event, Gammelgaard's poignant voice as a woman and as an amateur climber resonates loudly as a clear, honest, and purely unadulterated view of the intense human drama played out on one of the world's most dangerous and unforgiving mountains.
