Rated 5 Stars
This book recounts a tragic hike by a group of six Boy Scouts gone tragically wrong. The author Cathy Hufault, sister of one of the surviving scouts, authored this comprehensive account of those 19 days in the fall of 1958, following a record-breaking blizzard that came out of nowhere and took the young adventurers by surprise.
I was living at Ft. Huachuca, AZ when this happened and I remember it very well. Hundreds of people turned out to search in terrible weather conditions to try to find these boys. It broke everyone's heart when it became apparent that the outcome was not going to be a good one.
