Publisher's Summary

Should I Not Return is the story of a young east coast climber, who joins his brother in Alaska to climb Mount McKinley. What set their climb apart from those before it, and even those afterward, was a disaster of such magnitude that it became know as North America's worst mountaineering tragedy. Prior to July of 1967 only four men had ever perished on Denali, and then, in one fell swoop, Denali - like Melville's, Great White Whale, Moby Dick - indiscriminately took the lives of seven men.
The brothers survive one danger after another: a terrible train accident, a near drowning in the McKinley River, an encounter with a large grizzly, a 60 foot plunge into a gaping crevasse, swept away by a massive avalanche, and finally a climactic escape from the terror of 100 mph winds while descending from the summit. Should I Not Return is a one of a kind cliffhanger packed with danger, survival under the worst conditions, and heroism on the Last Frontier s most treasured trophy - the icy slopes of Denali, North America s tallest mountain - Mount McKinley.

Amazing Story. It made my hikes truly stupendous.

Where does Should I Not Return rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It was one of the best audible books i have downloaded to date!! The authors voice captures each character in a deep and personal way.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It turned a simple hour hike into a three hour hike when i first started listening. I finished the rest at my house later the next day. I didnt want to put it down.
