Left For Dead: My Journey Home from Everest
Left For Dead: My Journey Home from Everest by Beck Weathers
English | 2015 | ISBN-10: 0751561894 | 317 pages | ePUB | 2.5 MB
Anyone who has read Jon Krakauers famous account of the 1996 Everest disaster, INTO THIN AIR, will remember the story of Beck Weathers: the gregarious Texan climber who went snow-blind in the Death Zone below the summit and who spent a night out in the open during a blizzard that took the lives of a dozen colleagues and friends.
Even as he staggered back into Camp 4 the next morning, Becks condition was such that the other survivors assumed he would not make it back down the mountain. He was effectively left for dead, but drawing upon reserves of determination and courage he didnt know he had - as well as the extraordinary selflessness and bravery of a Nepalese helicopter pilot hed never met - he finally made it to safety. Only then could a new battle begin: to rebuild his life with a family hed taken for granted for too long.
Heartstoppingly exciting and ultimately very moving, LEFT FOR DEAD is a terrific read.
