From the Publisher:
From the author of A Wall of White, the thrilling account of a spectacular mountain rescue after six climbers are struck by lightning. On the afternoon of July 26, 2003, six climbers reached the peak of the Upper Exum Ridge of the Grand Teton near a 13,000-foot elevation. When rain blew in, the climbers began to retreat from their location by scaling Friction Pitch, a 120-foot section of smooth granite near the top of the peak. The first rope team had already climbed the pitch and begun to rappel down when the storm released a colossal lightning strike that traveled down the rope and pounded through the body of every climber, killing one person instantly. 

     As the storm continued and with darkness descending, one of the most experienced search-and-rescue climbing teams in the country pulled off one of the most incredible mountain rescues ever, earning eight Department of Interior Valor Awards which are given only to employees who save lives by risking their own.

     Set in the sweeping, historical, and iconic Grand Teton National Park and the Teton Range, A Bold from the Blue tells the story of eight mountaineers out for a climb, the terrifying arrival of the storm, the devastating lightning strike, and their dramatic rescue by a group of rangers.
