"Epic: Stories of Survival from the World's Highest Peaks," edited by Clint Willis, is all about the climb that went wrong: fighting blinding snowstorms and horrific avalanches; days spent tentbound running low on food, water and oxygen; surviving broken bones and shattered spirits.

With writing from Greg Child, David Roberts, Stephen Venables, Alfred Lansing and others, Epic is a collection of the most memorable accounts of legend-making expeditions to the world's most famous peaks, often in the worst possible conditions.

"If you liked Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air, read this book." --The Boston Phoenix
