It's summer vacation. George and Jack, while
playing in the forest, become lost and stumble            Journalist Krakauer, standing on the summit of Mt.
across a strange military base.                           Everest, saw nothing that "suggested that a
                                                          murderous storm was bearing down." He was wrong.
                                                          The storm claimed five lives and left countless more
                                                          in guilt-ridden disarray.
