"The Last Man on the Mountain"

Postby adventurer » Thu Aug 05, 2010 2:54 pm

A great new book by Jennifer Jordan. It's the story of Dudley Wolfe who was left to die on K2 in 1939. She found some of his remains on the Godwin-Austen Glacier in 2002.

Her writing style is really somewhat unique in that she does a fantastic job of non-fictional writing in the form of a novel.

This is her second book. She previously wrote "Savage Summit" which told the story of the five women who have climbed K2.
