A riviting narrative detailing the mysterious disappearance of Peter Starr, a San Francisco attorney from a prominent family, who set off to climb alone in the rugged Minaret region of the Sierra Nevada in July 1933. Rigorous and thorough searches by some of the best climbers in the history of the range failed to locate him despite a number of promising clues. When all hopes seemed gone, legendary mountaineer Norman Clyde continued the search to learn the fate of the lost man.
