Eiger Dreams: Ventures Among Men and Mountains
Jon Krakauer

This book is very different compared to Into Thin Air, probably his most well-known book. This book describes Krakauer's experiences with a variety of smaller and shorter climbing expeditions and other adventures that Krakauer has had over a number of years. A highlight for me was the description of ice climbing in Alaska. In many ways, this is a more personal book that offers much more background on Krakauer's ambitions and goals of climbing.

In addition to other awards, Jon Krakauer won the American Alpine Club's Literary Award in 1986.
