Product description


"A sobering and compelling story...Brilliant."

-- "Outdoor Guide"

"Shattered Air is a 'must-read' book."

-- "Sierra Club News"

A well-written and thoroughly investigated account...[Madgic's] contribution to the adventure category is at once a terrifying story and an urgent cautionary tale.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

"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."

-- "AudioFile"

A penetrating account of this tragedy.

-- "Booklist"

Product Description

The compelling account of recklessness, tragedy, courage and rescue, a book whose sobering depiction of Nature's danger is tempered by unforgettable portraits of the triumphant human spirit.
