"On May 6, 1996, dozens of excited climbers set off to scale Mount Everest and to reach the tallest point on Earth. On the morning of May 10, the skies were clear. The summit was in sight. But hours later, a terrible storm hit. Eight climbers died as they became trapped near the peak. What went wrong, and how did the survivors manage to make it back alive? Told through the gripping, full-color graphic novel format, this Deadly Expeditions tale transports readers back in time to discover how one of the deadliest days on Mount Everest unfolded"--, Provided by publisher
