Descrição

TERROR IN THE ANTACRTIC WASTELAND

After regaining consciousness and crawling from the twisted wreckage of the plane, Robert Hess surveyed the landscape around him: the icy desert of Antarctica stared back, a white emptiness as far as he could see. Then, from inside the plane came the screams of his mangled friend and the keening of frightened sled dogs.

Only a year earlier, Hess had been a retired flight engineer working for the phone company when an old friend made him an intriguing proposition: help fly supplies to Antarctica as part of famous explorer Norman Vaughan's expedition to climb Mt. Vaughan. It was a job Hess couldn t pass up, and he worked tirelessly with his friends to make it happen.

But now, he and his comrades found themselves fighting desperately to stay alive.

Blind Descent is a gripping insider s account of an adventure gone horribly wrong and what really happened on a plane crash that made headlines around the world.
