This is the French translation of Krakauer’s best-selling ‘Into Thin Air’ published by the renowned Guérin publishers in their traditional red cloth binding. What sets this book apart from both the US and UK trade editions of this book is Guérin’s inclusion of so many additional photos.

Jon Krakauer joined Rob Hall’s Adventure Consultants team to write for Outside magazine on an Everest guided climb. In the end he was one of the few survivors of the disastrous storm which killed eight climbers in May 1996. His account of one of mountaineering’s worst tragedies, and its implications for commercial guiding, was a bestseller for weeks and sold millions of copies.

In 1997 it won the Banff Mountaineering Literature Award. Jon won the 1986 AAC Literary Award for his writing achievements.
