SUMMER READING: EIGER DREAMS

 

 

“Eiger Dreams” by John Krakauer is pretty much the opposite of light summer reading. Yes, you’ll fly through the book, but it will keep you on the edge of your hammock. The book features a collection of 12 harrowing mountain adventures spanning the globe, from K2 to Mt. McKinley, and covers everything from the snooty climbing culture of Chamonix, to rough and tumble bush pilots in Alaska. As Publishers Weekly notes “Armchair adventurers can’t ask for better entertainment than this tour of the legendary locations of mountaineering and the eccentric climbers who gather there.”

 

 

Best known for “The Perfect Storm” and “Into the Wild,” two hugely successful books that were made into movies, Krakauer’s other titles deserve as much attention,  including “Into Thin Air” and “Under the Banner of Heaven.” Eiger Dreams, $13, available on Amazon.
