About This Book

In 1996, twelve mountaineers were lost at the same time when four teams of climbers tried to climb Mount Everest.
Into Thin Air is a non-fiction book written by journalist John Krakauer, who was then part of a climbing squad, about the full story of the incident.
In the spring of 1996, Ji Eun, who was a reporter for "The Outsider", joined a climbing group called Adventure Consultants to cover the ever-commercial ascent of Everest.
The climbers consisted of some professional mountaineers and ordinary people who could pay expensive participation fees.
There were people who wanted to test their pure passion for mountains or their extreme will, but there were also those who wanted to climb the mountain as a means to fame or as a luxury hobby.

However, San did not take into account the circumstances of each person.
The spirit and will of the crew 'in the thin air' of eight thousand meters above sea level was exposed.
They were pushed to the extreme limit, and life and death were decided by the difference in time.
The author, who survived thanks to descending from the top of the group, recorded the tragic events that took place there, reminiscing about the moment she had seen and experienced and interviews with other survivors.
