Description: In Kashmir, the fearsome K2 kills thirteen of the world's most experienced mountain climbers in one horrific summer. in Valdez, Alaska, two men scale a frozen waterfall over a four-hundred-foot drop. In France, a hip international crowd of rock climbers, bungee jumpers, and paragliders figure out new ways to risk their lives on the towering peaks of Mont Blanc.

No one writes about mountaineering and its attendant victories and hardships more brilliantly than Jon Krakauer. In Eiger Dreams, a collection of his finest essays and reporting, Krakauer writes of mountains and the daredevils, athletes, and misfits who climb them, from the memorable perspective of one who has himself struggled with solo madness to scale Alaska's notorious Devil's Thumb, and experienced the ravages of a storm atop Everest.

From the paranoid confines of a snowbound tent, to the thunderous, suffocating terror of a whiteout on Mount McKinley, Krakauer offers an extraordinary chronicle of driven lives, sudden deaths, and incredible victories. Eiger Dreams is a stirring, vivid book about one of the most compelling and dangerous of all human pursuits.
