Old Firehouse Books is proud to welcome Amanda Padoan, author of Buried in the Sky, to the store Saturday, August 18th. Peter Zuckerman and Amanda Padoan tell the gripping story of the tragic 2008 climb of K2 when eleven climbers died. Like Into Thin Air or Touching the Void, Buried in the Sky combines a page-turning adventure and a colorful cast of characters with a careful dissection of mountaineering culture. However, Zuckerman and Padoan break important new ground by telling the story not from the perspective of the Western climbers, but from the perspective of the often-overlooked high-altitude workers—the Sherpa and Pakistani climbers who scout the routes, tie the lines, and guide climbers through the brain-crushing, oxygen-deprived heights of the Death Zone. Join us at 7pm to meet Amanda Padoan, author Buried in the Sky.
