Description

The Neap smartstudy English text guide to Into Thin Air effectively analyses this best-selling account of the 1996 Mount Everest disaster. Jon Krakauer deftly interweaves facts about mountain-climbing, a general history of Everest, the culture of the climbing community, commercialisation, environmental issues and the psychology of survival into a compelling narrative. The text highlights the difficulty of accurate reportage and is a fascinating exploration of human behaviour under extreme conditions.show more
