After The Wind
1996 Everest Tragedy - One Survivor's Story
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Near the top of Mount Everest, on 10 May 1996, eight climbers died. It was the worst tragedy in the mountain’s history. Lou Kasischke was there. Now he tells the harrowing story of what went wrong, as it has never been told before — including why the climbers were desperately late and out of time. His personal story, captured in the title AFTER THE WIND, tells about the intense moments near the top. These moments also revealed the love story that saved his life.
I can't explain why, but I am fascinated with Mt. Everest stories. I purchased this book last night and finished tonight. Could not put it down. Loved it! A must read for any adventurer for sure, but I'm just a regular person and was totally caught up in it.
