Review

"'Into Thin Air' ... was a huge success, and "Buried in the Sky" will satisfy anyone who loved that book." (Boston Globe)

Enthralling ... Phenomenal research and vivid writing create a memorable portrait not only of the events on the mountain but also of the people who make modern high-altitude climbing possible. (The Wall Street Journal)

Winner of the National Outdoor Book Award, the Banff Mountain Book Award and the George Orwell Prize. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Peter Zuckerman has received some of the most prestigious recognitions in American journalism.
In 2005, he was one of the youngest people ever to win a Livingston Award, the largest, all-media, general reporting prize in America. Among the dozens of other awards his reporting has received is the National Journalism Award, given for the best newspaper writing in the United States; and the Blethan Award, given for the best journalism in the northwest. PBS profiled Zuckerman in an hour-long documentary, "In a Small Town," and Harvard University's Nieman Foundation for Excellence in Journalism profiled Zuckerman as part of a series about courageous reporting.
Zuckerman has served as visiting faculty at the Poynter Institute, the St. Petersburg, Florida-based journalism organization, and he has taught journalism at universities and professional seminars. He is a resident of the Falcon Art Community and a teacher at the Attic Institute. Zuckerman lives in Portland, Oregon.
