Life and Death on K2

Thursday, July 15, 2010

Journalist Graham Bowley gives an account of one of the most dramatic tales of death and survival in mountaineering history—the tragic 2008 K2 ascent that claimed the lives of eleven climbers, severely injured two others, and made headlines around the world. His book No Way Down: Life and Death on K2 is based on in-depth interviews with surviving climbers and many Sherpas, porters, and family and friends of the deceased.
