It took barely two terrifying days for the mountain to claim eight lives and turn the Everest Film Expedition team led by world-class mountaineer and award-winning filmmaker David Breashears, into eyewitnesses--and lifesavers--caught up in a tragedy that made headlines around the world. Here is a stunning portrait of the most majestic mountain on earth and a riveting firsthand account of the men and women who dare to challenge it. 026246
