Summary
"Everest: The Death Zone": Get ready for a breathtaking trek up Mt. Everest, from Base Camp through the chilling, corpse-strewn Death Zone, to the very pinnacle of the Earth, five and a half miles above sea level. "Volcano Above the Clouds": At 20,000 feet, Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest peak and also the world's tallest volcano. Although classified as dormant, Kilimanjaro has begun to stir, and evidence suggests that a massive landslide could rip open the side of the mountain. "Deadly Ascent": On Mt. McKinley, a team of researchers, doctors, and mountaineering experts investigate a strange and confounding sickness brought on by severe cold and high altitude. "Descent Into the Ice": Mont Blanc, western Europe's highest peak, rises majestically in the Alps. But deep inside its massive glaciers lurks a hidden danger: killer lakes with the potential to burst free. "Mountain of Ice": In this high-altitude adventure, author Jon Krakauer and world-class mountaineer Conrad Anker lead an expedition to the top of Antarctica's tallest peak, Vinson Massif
