Book About 1967 Tragedy That Killed Seven on Mount McKinley


The Washington Post has a review of “Forever on the Mountain” by James M. Tabor about the 1967 Mount McKinley tragedy that claimed the lives of seven men. The climbing team had come together late and was divided into two factions, which seems to have contributed to the disaster. Joe Wilcox, one of the expedition’s leaders, has shouldered much of the blame through the years, both from fellow team members and others. In this book, Tabor sets out to vindicate him.
