A survivor of the doomed 1996 Everest expedition recalls his remarkable comeback from being declared dead on the mountain, the daring rescue that brought him home alive, and his subsequent physical and psychological recovery. Reprint. *Author: Weathers, Beck *Subtitle: My Journey Home from Everest *Publication Date: 2001/11/01 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 0.75 *Width: 4.00 *Height: 6.75
From the Publisher:
“I can tell you that some force within me rejected death at the last moment and then guided me, blind and stumbling — quite literally a dead man walking — into camp and the shaky start of my return to life....”

In 1996 Beck Weathers and a climbing team pushed toward the summit of Mount Everest. Then a storm exploded on the mountain, ripping the team to shreds, forcing brave men to scratch and crawl for their lives. Rescuers who reached Weathers saw that he was dying, and left him.

Twelve hours later, the inexplicable occurred. Weathers appeared, blinded, gloveless, caked with ice — coming down the mountain as a “dead man walking.”

In this powerful memoir, Weather describes not only his escape from hypothermia and the murderous storm that killed nine climbers; he describes another journey, a life’s journey. This is the story of a man’s route to a dangerous sport and a fateful expedition, as well as the road of recovery he has traveled since.

In Left for Dead, we are witness to survival in the face of certain death, the reclaiming of a family and a life, and the most remarkable adventure of all: what we can do when we’re offered a second chance.
Annotation:
In this memoir, a survivor of the climb chronicled in Jon Krakauer's bestselling INTO THIN AIR tells of his single minded pursuit of the sport of mountaineering and its effect on his family, and of his recovery from the tragic experience, in which he lost both hands to frostbite.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"Beck Weathers owes his own fame to an experience that nearly killed him--this is what readers are curious about. On that score, at least, he delivers." - Erica Sanders 05/28/2000
