The chilly climate and thin air of the mountain biome adds an extra layer of danger to mishaps that occur at high altitudes. Shocking and triumphant true accounts of railroad wrecks, plane and helicopter crashes, and mountaineers who nearly met their maker are featured in this collection. Additional resources include sidebars about mountain safety and the gear you should bring when going on an outdoor trek.
