Buried in the Sky Zusammenfassung

Buried in the Sky: The Extraordinary Story of the Sherpa Climbers on K2's Deadliest Day Peter Zuckerman

When eleven climbers died on K2 in 2008, two Sherpas survived. Their astonishing tale became the stuff of mountaineering legend. This white-knuckle adventure follows the Sherpas from their remote villages in Nepal to the peak of the world's most dangerous mountain, recounting one of the most dramatic disasters in alpine history from a fascinating new perspective.

Winner of the NCTE George Orwell Award and an official selection of the American Alpine Club Book Club.
