Publisher's Summary

In May 1996 the media scrambled to document the gripping story of 16-year-old Mark Pfetzer's expedition to Mount Everest. Not only was he the youngest climber ever to attempt the summit, he also witnessed the tragedy documented in Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air, in which eight climbers perished in a sudden storm. Within Reach is Mark's extraordinary account of this experience and of his triumphs over several other challenging peaks. At once triumphant and tragic, this story will be an inspiration to climbers, athletes, and armchair enthusiasts alike.

Great Book

I purchased this book thinking it would just be a "filler" book until I had time to really look at some reviews. When the beginning began "audible kids" I thought, "Great, what did I buy here?", but I have to say this is one of the best books I've ever listened to or read. So well written and the reader was great. An extremely inspiring book. I highly recommend it.
