Everest Survivor Memoir, ‘After the Wind,’ Reaches New Milestones

NEW YORK, NY, USA, September 21, 2016 / -- Following a summer when independent bookstores voted "After the Wind" one of the best books for reading groups and book clubs to read and discuss, Lou Kasischke’s account of the disastrous 1996 Everest expedition is approaching a year in print in paperback after going back to press twice.

"After the Wind" addresses previously unanswered questions about the tragedy, bringing new perspective to the events of that fateful expedition.

Lou Kasischke, consultant to the blockbuster film "Everest," says: "'After the Wind' tells the Everest story that 'Into Thin Air' didn’t tell. My book has a materially different focus of what went wrong. The two books actually highlight a fascinating question: How can people in the same situation experience it so differently?"

On the May 20th Summit Day in 1996, twenty years ago, Michigan native Lou Kasischke survived because, just 400 feet from the summit — when he felt it was too late in the day — he made the lifesaving decision to turn back from his quest and head back down the mountain and home to his wife.

Climbers, hikers, and outdoor book readers, as well as fans of true-life adventure, will find "After the Wind" a riveting book about this famous expedition, the cold and hostile environment, and the physical and mental rigors of high-altitude climbing.

"After the Wind: Tragedy on Everest – One Survivor’s Story" has garnered several notable awards since publication:

Winner: National Excellence Book Award (Adventure/Memoir)
Winner: Pete Delohery Award for Best Sports Book
Bronze: Independent Publisher Book Award (Sports)
Winner: New York Book Festival (Memoir)
Bronze: Foreword Review Book of the Year Award (Adventure)
