A San Francisco Chronicle BestsellerA WALL OF WHITE
The True Story of Heroism and Survival in the Face of a Deadly Avalanche
Calling to mind the literary classics Into Thin Air and The Perfect Storm, A Wall of White is a gripping tale of man vs. nature. With the gasping suspense of a death-defying thriller, Jennifer Woodlief chronicles the once-in-a-century cataclysmic event that claimed seven lives, tested the mettle of a rowdy but resolute team of rescue workers and ultimately proved a tale of triumph over death with the rescue of Anna Conrad, a young woman saved after five harrowing days spent buried alive under the snow. Masterfully recounted by Woodlief, A Wall of White is an unparalleled look at one of the largest and most destructive avalanche disasters in U.S. history.
"A mesmerizing tale of human courage and heroism."
