Re: Lene Gammelgaard's book...I've read it and her perspective is closer to Anatoli's. Not a great piece of climbing literature, but not bad either. Reading multiple books on that season is a lesson in perspective and that everyone creates their own "truth" to make sense of life's events.

"Savage Aren"a, by Joe Tasker

 

Not a climb book, but "Running the Amazon", the account of the first complete descent of the Amazon River, is one of the top all time adventure / endurance books I've ever read.
