K2: the Story of the Savage Mountain

Buy @ amazonby Jim Curan.
To me, the K2 with its mystic name and "matterhon-like" shape (except that it is nearly 2 on top of each other) is THE incarnation of what a mountain is: beautiful, majestic, merciless.

Into The Wild

Buy @ amazonby Jon Krakauer.
Chris, a young graduate gave all his savings to a charity, took his guitar and car and went on the road. His parents will never hear from him again. 2 years later, he is found, dead, in an abandonned bus in the middle of Alaska. He died of hunger! In a vivid and torough investigation, Jon Krakauer tries to retrace the journey of Chris, was he mad and careless as some have affirmed, or was there something else. Deep and disturbing, brilliantly written.

1996. Everest. Too Many People. Terrible Storm. Too Many Dead. This book is a bit of a therapy for Jon Krakauer, it is very emotional and will grip you from page one.

Another book by Mr Miraculous!  And indeed you will discover how many times this guy managed to cheat death... unlike a lot of his friends...  This book is a bit too much of an anthology of Death.
