Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

Author and outdoorsman Jon Krakauer (INTO THIN AIR) introduces us to climbers from around the world. This collection of essays reports on the people who scale the world's highest mountains, glaciers, waterfalls and boulders. We become familiar with the aura and addictive power of these feats through Philip Franklin. His narration is flawless, aligning the written and spoken-word. Both the intensity of mountaineering and its foolhardiness come through. Franklin's delivery brings us to the scene firsthand, and we become privy to these international adventurers and their daredevil exploits.
