The true story of a tragic climb. Dust jacket notes: On June 25, 1967, the twelve members of the Joseph F. Wilcox Mount McKinley Expedition began their ascent of 20,320-foot Mount McKinley, North America's highest mountain peak. Only five of them were to return. In this book, oneof the survivors of the expedition tells the day-to-day story of the climb, and describes the raging storm and the crucial errors in judgment which led to the deaths of seven men. At the same time, in depicting the fascinating interplay of personalities, he provides a vivid picture of a microcosm of humanity strugling for survival in a world of ice.
