In May 1996 the media scrambled to document the gripping story of 16-year-old Mark Pfetzer's expedition to Mount Everest. Not only was he the youngest climber ever to attempt the summit, he also witnessed the tragedy documented in Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air, in which eight climbers perished in a sudden storm. Within Reach is Mark's extraordinary account of this experience and of his triumphs over several other challenging peaks. At once triumphant and tragic, this story will be an inspiration to climbers, athletes, and armchair enthusiasts alike.More

A very nice book
climbing everest in 1996 the year of the great tragedy when 11 people lost their lives.
Absolutey brilliant one of the best narrators. made the story come alive and it just felt like mark Pfetzer himself was telling the story. he really captured the young boy's excitement, ambition, courage and determination
matk's determination and sheer hard to accomplish his dream and the unwavering support of his parents.
A true story of a 13 year old boy's dream. Not particularly exciting, no suspense, no heart stopping moments but still it held my attention easily and I really enjoyed it. most people interested in the Himalays and Everest in particular will enjoy it
