In the summer of 1967, seven mountaineers perished while climbing Alaska’s Denali (Mt. McKinley) when a freak combination of weather systems created a huge maelstrom that pummeled the mountain with hurricane force winds and snow. Despite a gripping story, Jim Manchester’s narration is marred by several mispronunciations and inaccurate transcriptions from the original text. Putting those issues aside, his reading moves along steadily and quickly engages listeners with the developing disaster and subsequent rescue attempts as well as the emotions of many of the participants. Written by the son of the Denali park superintendent during the climb, this book offers a fresh perspective on the disaster itself along with revelations about attempts to close Denali to climbing in the aftermath.
