| Summary

On the evening of July 27, 1985, five hikers made a fateful choice to climb Yosemite's Half Dome, even as the sky darkened and thunder rolled. By night's end, two would be dead from a lightning strike, three gravely wounded, and desperate EMTs would be overseeing a harrowing midnight helicopter rescue.

[A] well-written and thoroughly investigated account....[Madgic's] contribution to the adventure category is at once a terrifying story and an urgent cautionary tale.-Publishers Weekly
