9780141044064: No Way Down: Life and Death on K2

No Way Down is the the gripping, terrifying story of a brutal struggle for survival on the upper slopes of the Himalayan K2, the world's most hostile terrain, by Graham Bowley.

K2, August 1st, 2008.

Thirty climbers are attempting the summit of the most savage mountain on Earth. They make it. But before they start their descent an ice shelf collapses, sweeping away their ropes. It is dark. Their lines are gone. They are low on oxygen. And it is getting very, very cold.

How many will make it down alive?

'A gripping hour-by-hour dissection of events in the Western Himalayas over three deadly days. A fitting shelfmate to the modern classic Into Thin Air. A cracking read' Sunday Times

'Stories of heroism, sadness and extraordinary endurance against all the odds [are] woven into a thrilling drama' Daily Mail

'Unputdownable. A portrait of extreme courage, folly and loss, leavened by a small dose of survival . . . as complete a version of the calamitous story as will probably ever emerge' Financial Times

'The best mountain-disaster memoir since Into Thin Air' Mail on Sunday

Graham Bowley was born in England in 1968. He is a reporter for the New York Times. He lives in Manhattan with his wife and their two daughters and son.

Book Description:

Riveting and powerful; an extraordinary story of an extraordinary tragedy. Reading No Way Down is the closest you can come to being on the summit of K2 on that fateful day (Sir Ranulph Fiennes)

A gripping hour-by-hour dissection of events in the Western Himalaya over three deadly days... a fitting shelfmate to the modern classic Into Thin Air (Brian Schofield Sunday Times)

Stories of heroism, sadness and extraordinary endurance against all the odds are woven into a thrilling drama (Christopher Hudson Daily Mail)

Unputdownable... a portrait of extreme courage, folly and loss, leavened by a small dose of survival' ( Financial Times)

Artfully and assiduously pieces together an account of a fractious day in brutal real time. Fatality by fatality... devastating ( New York Times)

A tour de force of a book...a triumph of storytelling ( Associated Press)

Probably the best mountain-disaster memoir since Into Thin Air ( Mail on Sunday)

One of the best books I've ever read. But take it to the beach at your peril - it's impossible to put down. Sunburn is guaranteed ( Outdoor Science)

Descrizione libro Condizione libro: New. Publisher/Verlag: Penguin UK | Life and Death on K2 | It's the summit of K2, 1 August 2008. An exhausted band of climbers pump their fists into the clear blue sky - joining the elite who have conquered the world's most lethal mountain. But as they celebrate, far below them an ice shelf collapses and sweeps away their ropes. They don't know it yet, but they will be forced to descend into the blackness with no lines. Of the thirty who set out, eleven will never make it back. Following the stories of climbers from around the world, "No Way Down" weaves a tale of human courage, folly, survival and devastating loss. The stories are heart-wrenching: the young married couple whose rope was torn apart by an avalanche, sending the husband to his death; the 61-year-old Frenchman who called his family from near the summit to say he wouldn't make it home. So what drove them to try to conquer this elusive peak? And what went wrong that fateful day? | No Way Down is the the gripping, terrifying story of a brutal struggle for survival on the upper slopes of the Himalayan K2, the world's most hostile terrain, by Graham Bowley.K2, August 1st, 2008.Thirty climbers are attempting the summit of the most savage mountain on Earth.
