9/21/10: The Last Man on the Mountain

Salt Lake City, Utah – In 1939, American adventurer Dudley Wolfe set out to become the first man to summit K2, the world's second highest, but deadliest peak. Instead, he became its first known victim. Exhausted, confused and suffering from altitude sickness, Wolfe was left behind by his climbing team. It was more than 60 years later when journalist Jennifer Jordan found his remains on the glacier at the base. Tuesday, Jordan joins Doug to talk about her new book, The Last Man on the Mountain.

  • This Thursday, September 23rd at 7:00 p.m., Jennifer Jordan will do a book signing at The King's English Bookshop. For more information, click here or call (801) 484-9100.
