Recently Finished Reading: Minus 148 Degrees – First Winter Ascent of Mt. McKinley

minus 148 bookcoverWow! What an awesome, gripping and unbelievable story! I read the book in less than a week. I couldn’t put the book down. I was glued to it! I was just amazed at what happen to the team while on the mountain. It’s truly amazing that any of the team members survived the expedition. Mt. McKinley is the tallest mountain in North America (20,320 feet) and is an unnerving challenge during the spring & summer climbing season and these guys wanted to climb the mountain in the dead of winter ….. The Author did a great job in bringing out the terror, excitement, fear, pain and the environment that the team members faced while climbing towards the summit. The book is an amazing story of human survival. A must read!
