In North America's worst mountaineering disaster, seven accomplished climbers died mysteriously on Alaska's Mt. McKinley in 1967. No bodies, journals, or other evidence were ever recovered and, incredibly, no attempt was made to rescue the climbers. Forty years later, too many crucial questions remained unanswered. The international-award-winning FOREVER ON THE MOUNTAIN sought, and found, the answers.
