Abstract:

On the evening of July 27, 1985, five hikers made a fateful choice to climb Yosemite's fabled Half Dome even as the sky darkened and thunder rolled. By night's end, two would be dead from a lightning strike, three gravely wounded, and desperate EMTs would be overseeing a harrowing midnight helicopter rescue. Shattered Air is a haunting account of recklessness, tragedy, courage and rescue, a book whose depiction of Nature's power is tempered by unforgettable portraits of human courage and the will to survive.
