"if you liked Jon Krakaur's Into Thin Air, read this book." - Peter Kadzis, Editor, The Boston Pheonix

Epic, a mountaineering term that evokes a sense of treacherous disaster. The climb that went wrong: frighting blinding snowstorms and horrific avalanches; days spent tentbound running low on food, water and oxygen; surviving broken bones and shattered spirits. Epic is a collection of the most memorable accounts of legend-making expeditions to the world's most famous peaks, often in the worst possible conditions.
