Into the Wild

Editura: Anchor Books

Anul aparitiei: 1997

In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter. How McCandless came to die is the unforgettable story of Into the Wild. Immediately after graduating from college in 1991, McCandless had roamed through the West and Southwest on a vision quest like those made by his heroes Jack London and John Muir. In the Mojave Desert he abandoned his car, stripped it of its license plates, and burned all of his cash. He would give himself a new name, Alexander Supertramp, and, unencumbered by money and belongings, he would be free to wallow in the raw, unfiltered experiences that nature presented. Craving a blank spot on the map, McCandless simply threw the maps away. Leaving behind his desperate parents and sister, he vanished into the wild. Jon Krakauer constructs a clarifying prism through which he reassembles the disquieting facts of ...

Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mount Everest Disaster

Editura: Anchor Books

Anul aparitiei: 1999

National Bestseller A bank of clouds was assembling on the not-so-distant horizon, but journalist-mountaineer Jon Krakauer, standing on the summit of Mt. Everest, saw nothing that "suggested that a murderous storm was bearing down." He was wrong. The storm, which claimed five lives and left countless more--including Krakauer's--in guilt-ridden disarray, would also provide the impetus for Into Thin Air, Krakauer's epic account of the May 1996 disaster. By writing Into Thin Air, Krakauer may have hoped to exorcise some of his own demons and lay to rest some of the painful questions that still surround the event. He takes great pains to provide a balanced picture of the people and events he witnessed and gives due credit to the tireless and dedicated Sherpas. He also avoids blasting easy targets such as Sandy Pittman, the wealthy socialite who brought an espresso maker along on the expedition. Krakauer's highly personal inquiry into the catastrophe provides a great deal of insight into what went wrong. But for Krakauer himself, further interviews and investigations only lead him to the conclusion that his perceived failures were directly responsible for a fellow climber's death. ...

Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman

Editura: Doubleday Books

Anul aparitiei: 2009

The bestselling author of Into the Wild, Into Thin Air, and Under the Banner of Heaven delivers a stunning, eloquent account of a remarkable young man's haunting journey. Like the men whose epic stories Jon Krakauer has told in his previous bestsellers, Pat Tillman was an irrepressible individualist and iconoclast. In May 2002, Tillman walked away from his $3.6 million NFL contract to enlist in the United States Army. He was deeply troubled by 9/11, and he felt a strong moral obligation to join the fight against al-Qaeda and the Taliban. Two years later, he died on a desolate hillside in southeastern Afghanistan. Though obvious to most of the two dozen soldiers on the scene that a ranger in Tillman's own platoon had fired the fatal shots, the Army aggressively maneuvered to keep this information from Tillman's wife, other family members, and the American public for five weeks following his death. During this time, President Bush repeatedly invoked Tillman's name to promote his administration's foreign policy. Long after Tillman's nationally televised memorial service, the Army grudgingly notified his closest relatives that he had "probably" been killed by friendly fire while it ...

Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mount Everest Disaster

Editura: Villard Books

Anul aparitiei: 1997

When Jon Krakauer reached the summit of Mt. Everest in the early afternoon of May 10, 1996, he hadn't slept in fifty-seven hours and was reeling from the brain-altering effects of oxygen depletion. As he turned to begin his long, dangerous descent from 29,028 feet, twenty other climbers were still pushing doggedly toward the top. No one had noticed that the sky had begun to fill with clouds. Six hours later and 3,000 feet lower, in 70-knot winds and blinding snow, Krakauer collapsed in his tent, freezing, hallucinating from exhaustion and hypoxia, but safe. The following morning, he learned that six of his fellow climbers hadn't made it back to their camp and were desperately struggling for their lives. When the storm finally passed, five of them would be dead, and the sixth so horribly frostbitten that his right hand would have to be amputated. Into Thin Air is the definitive account of the deadliest season in the history of Everest by the acclaimed journalist and author of the bestseller Into the Wild. On assignment for Outside Magazine to report on the growing commercialization of the mountain, Krakauer, an accomplished climber, went to the Himalayas as a client of Rob Hall, the ...

In aerul rarefiat

Editura: Humanitas

Volum tradus în peste douăzeci şi cinci de limbi, desemnat în 1997 „Cartea anului“ de către Time Magazine, finalist la National Book Critics Circle Award şi inclus în anul următor pe lista celor trei finaliste pentru Pulitzer Prize. În 1996 Jon Krakauer porneşte, alături de Rob Hall, unul dintre cei mai respectaţi şi cunoscuţi ghizi montani de mare altitudine din lume, în ceea ce avea să devină aventura vieţii sale. Spunând povestea celei mai cumplite ascensiuni din istoria alpinismului mondial, a zilei în care şi-au pierdut viaţa patru dintre membrii expediţiei conduse de Hall (inclusiv acesta), Krakauer îşi îndrumă pas cu pas cititorii de-a lungul expediţiei, din Kathmandu până pe vârful muntelui, unde mândria, lăcomia, deciziile greşite şi ghinionul i-au făcut pe căţărători să cadă pradă furiei neprevăzute a muntelui. Ascensiunea e plină de pericole şi îi face pe alpinişti, profesionişti sau nu, să-şi dezvăluie adevăratul caracter, slăbiciunile şi dorinţele cele mai intime pe măsură ce se apropie de scopul călătoriei lor. În aerul rarefiat este o carte foarte bine scrisă şi minuţios documentată, care îi ...
