Die meeste mense is te besig om ure by groente- en vrugtemarkte, en delikatessewinkels te spandeer en dan nog ’n paar uur in die dombuis te staan om spyskaarte en maaltye uit te dink wat hul gesinne sal geniet.

After regaining consciousness and crawling from the twisted wreckage of the plane, Robert Hess surveyed the landscape around him: the icy desert of Antarctica stared back, a white emptiness as far as he could see. Then, from inside the plane came the screams of his mangled friend and the keening of frightened sled dogs.

Only a year earlier, Hess had been a retired flight engineer working for the phone company when an old friend made him an intriguing proposition: help fly supplies to Antarctica as part of famous explorer Norman Vaughan's expedition to climb Mt. Vaughan. It was a job Hess couldn t pass up, and he worked tirelessly with his friends to make it happen.

But now, he and his comrades found themselves fighting desperately to stay alive.

Blind Descent is a gripping insider s account of an adventure gone horribly wrong and what really happened on a plane crash that made headlines around the world.
