From the Publisher Into Thin Air is the definitive, personal account of the deadliest season in the history of Mount Everest--told by acclaimed journalist, andbestselling author of Into the Wild and Eiger Dreams, Jon Krakauer.  On assignment for Outside magazine, Krakauer, an accomplishedclimber, went to the Himalayas to report on the growing commercialization of the planet''s highest mountain.  Even though one climber in four dies attemptingto reach the summit of Everest, business is booming as guides take the rich and the adventurous up the mountain for a fee of $65,000.  Krakauer examines what it is about Everest that has compelled so many people--including himself--to throw caution to the wind and willingly subject themselves to so much danger, hardship, and expense.
