Mountaineers everywhere had an opinion on this controversial story when it was first published. Now available in a paperbound version, K2: The 1939 Tragedy unravels the complex tangle of events and personalities that led to four deaths on the 1939 American expedition to K2. With the aid of a recently available trip diary, this book challenges the conventionally accepted version of the story.
