Mountain madness : Scott Fischer, Mount Everest & a life lived on high by Robert Birkby ( Book )
6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Best known as one of the guides who perished on Mount Everest during the tragic spring of 1996, Scott Fischer became for many a symbol of audacity, hubris, and the limits of human endurance. But to those who knew him well, Scott was much more than an action figure in a modern-day cautionary tale. Now, a close friend tells who Scott Fischer really was and what led him to the top of the world. Scott thrived on the challenges of climbing, the beauty of the high country, and the like-minded people he found there. His guide service meshed his need to climb with his joy in sharing the lofty, rarified realms with others. Birkby traces Scott's expeditions from the granite walls of Yosemite to Alaska to the punishing storms of the Himalayas--a relentless quest for new highs that builds inexorably to the rendezvous with disaster on Everest.--From publisher description
