In the mountaineering community, Krakauer received some criticism regarding his accounts of this tragedy -- There was a pretty decent book written by Scott Fisher's lead guide, Anatoli Boukreev, called 'The Climb' which details his account in the rescue- After thoroughly reading both accounts, I came to the conclusion that Boukreev's account is more authentic-- I also consider the attempts of Boukreev to help all those afflicted to be one of the most hurculean physical human feats ever...
