"The Last Man on the Mountain"

by 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.

i'm pleased to say that i'll be the Everest BC doc in two years for a company owned and run by sherpas, some pretty accomplished 8000m climbers, if i might add.
