Forever on the Mountain: The Truth Behind One of Mountaineering's Most Controversial and Mysterious Disasters

Forever on the Mountain In July 1967, seven young men-members of a twelve-man expedition - died on Mt McKinley. Ten days passed with no rescue attempt, while more than half an expedition was stranded and dying at 20,000 feet during a vicious Arctic storm. The bodies were never recovered. This work gives an account of the tragedy that ended a golden age in mountaineering.
