Description


These beautiful mist-shrouded mountains can, and often do, turn deadly... Volume I of Into the Mist depicts men and women in extreme situations, struggling to survive against brutal and often deadly adversity. Through the book's 13 chapters, Into the Mist readers will: -Piece together the events leading to a tragic encounter between an elementary school teacher and two black bears in the park's backcountry. -Share in the heroic response of the park's rangers in the face of brutal weather events, including the March 1993 "Storm of the Century," and their successful efforts to rescue hundreds of stranded visitors and ultimately prevent loss of life and limb. -Experience a lone hiker's final moments as he succumbs to bitter cold without benefit of a shelter as wind-driven snow piles ever higher on the trail. -Learn how the body of a murdered Jane Doe discovered in a park stream leads to a cross-country hunt for her killer. -A bonus appendix lists the park's leading causes of death and most dangerous places.
