Into Thin Air

by Jon Krakauer

4.4/5

Hours after giving birth, a young woman flees her baby and her husband and slips into a new life. With rare insight and compassion, Caroline Leavitt shows us the impact of that flight through the eyes of the husband and child left behind.

“With enough determination, any bloody idiot can get up this hill,” Hall observed. “The trick is to get back down alive.”
