The outdoor adventure stories of Jon Krakauer are some of the most captivating writing being published today. "Eiger Dreams," his collection of mountaineering essays, takes the reader on an unforgettable journey from Alaska to the Alps to the Himalaya. "Into the Wild," the engrossing, tragic story of Chris McCandless, is a haunting book that remains with the reader far after the book is finished.

His latest book is "Into Thin Air," a personal account of the disastrous Mount Everest expedition of May 1996. Listen to this excerpt of Krakauer reading from the BDD Audio release.
