More About Minus 148 by Art Davidson; David Roberts
 
 
 
Overview
In 1967, eight men attempted North America's highest summit: Mount McKinley (now known as Denali) had been

climbed before but never in winter.

Plagued by doubts and cold, group tension and a crevasse tragedy, the expedition tackled McKinley in minimal hours of

daylight and fierce storms. They were trapped at three different camps above 14,000 feet during a six-day blizzard and

faced the ultimate low temperature of 148 F.

Minus 148 is Art Davidson's stunning personal narrative, supplemented by diary excerpts from team members George

Wichman, John Edwards, Dave Johnston, and Greg Blomberg. Davidson retells the team's fears and frictions and

ultimate triumph with an honesty that has made this gripping survival story a mountaineering classic for over 40

years. Minus 148 is featured among many "best of" reading lists, including National Geographic Adventure's "The 100

Greatest Adventure Books of all Time."
