Into Thin Air Summary. Journalist Jon Krakauer is looking to fulfill a childhood ambition by finally climbing Mount Everest. After being assigned to write a brief piece about the mountain for Outside magazine, Krakauer manages to convince his bosses to fund a full-fledged expedition to the top. Bold.. Krakauer is climbing with Adventure Consultants, a commercial group led by . Thin Air is the sixth book in Ann Cleeves' Shetland series – a major BBC One drama starring Douglas Henshall as detective Jimmy Perez.. A group of old university friends leave the bright lights of London and travel to Unst, Shetland's most northerly island, to celebrate the marriage of one of their friends to a Shetlander/5(K).

After Into Thin Air was published, Anatoli Boukareev and Krakauer had a public battle over the guide’s actions on the summit day.

It is the afternoon of , and Jon Krakauer, the author, hasn’t slept for 57 stands at the summit of Mount Everest, “one foot in China and the other in Nepal,” and finds that he can’t summon the energy to enjoy the air is thin, meaning that barely any oxygen is flowing to his brain, and he’s utterly exhausted.
