SHATTERED AIR A True Account of Catastrophe and Courage on Yosemite’s Half Dome

by | Read by Anthony Heald

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

In 1985 two hikers were killed by lightning while climbing Yosemite’s Half Dome, which has been described as a “granite lightning rod.” This is their story, and much more. Madgic explores the history of Yosemite, the damage lightning can do, methods to treat it, the efforts of a female EMT who kept the injured alive until a helicopter could come, and the hikers’ backgrounds. Anthony Heald’s slightly husky voice is perfect for this outdoor horror story. He adds foreshadowing when describing the gathering clouds, quickens the pace during the storm, and injects personality into the follow-up interviews. Listen and be educated, entertained—and cautioned. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
