Publishers Description: The amazing story of Australian mountain climber Lincoln Hallas rescue following a night spent near the summit of Mount Everest, where he had been left for dead by the other members of his expedition. Lincoln Hall likes to say that on the evening of May 25, 2006, he died on Everest. Indeed, he attempted to climb the mountain during a deadly season in which eleven people perished. And Hall, in fact, was pronounced dead, after collapsing from altitude sickness. Two Sherpas spent hours trying to revive him, but, as darkness fell, word came via radio from the exhibitionas leader that the Sherpas should descend the mountain in order to save themselves. The news of Lincoln Hallas death traveled rapidly from mountaineering websites to news media around the world, and ultimately to his family back in Australia. Early the next morning, however, an American guide, climbing with two clients and a Sherpa, was startled to find Hall, sitting cross-legged on the summit ridge, just staring at them. As featured in the Emmy-nominated "Dateline NBC" documentary aMiracle on Mount Everest, a "Dead Lucky" is Lincoln Hallas account of this miraculous night atop Everest and the days and nights that led up to and followed this fascinating expedition. Hall had been part of Australias first attempt to climb to the top of the mountain in 1984, but, he had not done any serious climbing for many years, having set aside his passion in order to support his family. Hall was forced to turn back due to illness in 1984 so his triumph in reaching the summit at the age of fifty is a story unto itself. Not since "Into Thin Air" has there been such a thrilling Everest story. "Dead Lucky" is a page-turner frombeginning to end.
