After the Wind: Tragedy on Everest --- One Survivor's Story by Lou Kasischke

Near the top of Mount Everest, on May 10, 1996, eight climbers died. At the time, it was the worst tragedy in the mountain's history. Lou Kasischke was there. AFTER THE WIND tells the harrowing story of what went wrong, as it has never been told before --- including why the climbers were so desperately out of time as the rogue storm struck. His personal story, captured in the title AFTER THE WIND, tells about the intense moments near the top. These moments also revealed the love story that saved his life.
