The most important survival tool is the mind.” To understand some of the factors involved in coming through alive, I recommend Deep Survival by Laurence Gonzales, one of the best books about the subject that I have read.

Here are some other books about those who made it and some about those who perished:

Touching the Void by Joe Simpson

Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer

Alive by Piers Paul Read

Climb by Anatoli Boukreev

North to the Pole by Will Steger

The Survival of Jan Little by John Man

Tracks by Robyn Davidson

The Snow Leopard by Peter Matthiessen
