I read an abridged version of Krakauer’s Into Thin Air soon after it was published, and was absorbed by the prose and the presentation of the story. I’m currently waiting for a copy from the e-library to make its way to me, but while I wait, I thought I would try others. My courage was high, so I checked out Missoula. Oh, mercy. Oh, mercy. The Chancellor would occasionally look over at my angry vein throbbing in my head and ask, “WHY are you reading this before bed?” Good question, sir. It’s perhaps one of the most important nonfiction and educational reform books I have ever read in my life, but perhaps I should have read it during daylight hours.
