Seven men climbing Mount McKinley on a 1967 expedition died after being trapped by a storm. Who was responsible? The debate continues to this day, and Tabor considers the arguments as he tells the story of the disastrous climb. Scott Brick's narration brings out the drama of facing the elements. Emphasizing the tension and danger of such an endeavor, he gives a gripping delivery of passages about the climb itself and about past mountain-climbing tragedies. Brick also brings alive the passions of the debate. Tabor's thoroughness in examining the arguments over responsibility does mean a few slow passages, although, overall, the book has plenty of thrills.
